What distro of Linux are you using?

What is you current display manager (xdm, gdm, kdm)? All these display managers have xdmcp capability.

If you boot up in a gui mode you are probably using one of these display managers ... you can figure out which one in several different ways. probably the easiest is:

ps -ef | grep xdm

ps -ef | grep gdm

ps -ef | grep kdm

My ps -ef | grep gdm shows this:

ps -ef | grep gdm
root      4032     1  0 Jan24 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/gdm-binary -nodaemon
root      4085  4032  0 Jan24 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/gdm-binary -nodaemon
root     20883  4085  1 Jan28 ?        00:17:19 /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 -auth /var/gdm/:0.Xauth vt7
root     22640 21758  0 07:53 pts/1    00:00:00 grep gdm I have gdm running
