XDMCP

XDMCP

XDMCP stands for X Display manager control protocol.

The display system used in Linux was designed from the beginning as a network protocol, where the system and programs run in one computer and the display being shown on another.

The XDMCP protocol allows you to login graphically to a remote computer.

It is not a very fast protocol and these days there are better ways to achieve the same effect in a more efficient manner.

As of Gnome 2.2 and KDE 4 support for XDMCP login on the GDM/KDM login screen was dropped.

Remote Collaboration: A successful presentation

It seems that the time was well spent preparing this presentation. I had an awesome and engaged audience that kept with me through out the presentation, even while we were trying to sort the technical limitations of the physical space.

Unfortunately it seems that the webcast wasn't as successful due to the limited bandwidth at the meeting location. Next time I'll use plan B.

If you logged in remotely, please let me know how was your experience. was the sound good? was the screen choppy? What would you like to see for next time?
