View Full Version : [ubuntu] XDMCP Chooser not displaying the correct hostname

December 17th, 2008, 12:00 PM
Hi all,

I have an Ubuntu machine set up with XDMCP to allow remote login/access, this all runs fine. My problem is the Chooser dialog that appears when you try to connect to XDMCP. Rather than show the XDMCP server hostname (which is ubuntu), it displays:

Unknown-(mac address number of the network card).config

The hostname command displays the correct hostname, but the above 'Unknown' seems to me to be a default of some kind.

Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks in advance.
