I'm attempting to have xdm show a login screen on another system on my
internal LAN. After attempting the following from the remote host
Xquartz -query my.ip.address
I get the following error message in /var/log/xdm.log
xdm error (pid 853): Cannot convert Internet address
remotehost.ip.address to host name
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xwilling: Permission denied.
I have the following in /etc/hosts
remotehost.ip.address remotehost.my.domain remotehost
This should convert the ip Internet address to a host name. Any
suggestions on what else could be wrong here?
