ldm — a display manager for LTSP

Synopsis

ldm <vt[1-N]> <:[0-N]>

Description

ldm(1) starts an X server and presents the user with a login screen, similar to the gdm(1) login prompt. instead of using the XDMCP protocol, ldm(1) uses ssh(1) connect to remote servers, then starts an Xsession either via ssh(1) X forwarding, or direct TCP/IP connection.

It was designed for the LTSP project, but could be used in a non-ltsp environment as well.

Options

<vt[1-N]>
tty where ldm will run

<:[0-N]>
X display that ldm uses.
