Bary,
	I wish it was that simple. The /etc/hosts file is fine. Ssh is
working fine, openvpn is working fine, evrything that I can think of is
fine, just no login screen. Turning off iptables doesn't help.
	xdmcp is listening on udp 177, gdm.conf has "enable=true" in
[xdmcp] section, preferred display manager is set to gdm.
	The one hopeful sign is that I don't get the login screen in VNC -
that means that the problem is not with ltsp setup.
grrrr. julius
