XDM trouble shooting

Allow X11 to use TCP to open other applications from other hosts

By default, xdm starts X with the -nolisten tcp option, which means that X will not be listening for remote applications that want to show up on the local machine. To make it different, vi /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers` and chop -nolisten tcp off the line.
