This page intends to allow remote sessions using "X Display Manager Control Protocol" (XDMCP).

One way to start the X server is trough kdm, and if u want to be able to login remotely to your kde session from a remote machine, you need to allow xdmcp. To do this edit you kdmrc ( /opt/kde/share/config/kdm/kdmrc ) and at the end there should be something like this:

[Xdmcp]
Enable=true

Then you need to restart your X server so the change you just made takes effect:

/etc/rc.d/kdm restart

Now you should be able to login remotely using your prefered session/WM. Enjoy!
