    more research

    After doing some research it seems that I DONT want to use XDMCP -> Is there anyway that using SSH I can get my WindowMaker desktop to show up on my laptop???

    PS - SSH -l uname ip.add.of.desktop -> works fine! and I am able to run X apps fine...

    In that case, might I suggest the following from a text mode terminal with no X server previously started:
    Code:
    xinit $(which ssh) -l uname ip.addr.of.desktop /bin/sh -lc "exec wmaker"
