Error: XDMCP timed out. State=4 (CollectBroadcastQuery)

Hello,

I am a new member of this forum. I am trying to solve a following problem with CDE in HPUX 11. The error is Error: XDMCP timed out. State=4 (CollectBroadcastQuery). I have uncommented the following lines from the Xaccess file -

* grant service to all remote displays
* CHOOSER BROADCAST any indirect host can get a chooser

However, I am still getting the error - Error: XDMCP timed out. State=4 (CollectBroadcastQuery). The following is the copy of Xaccess file. I am hoping someone can help me to solve this problem.

I thank you in advance

Shad

#
# This file contains a list of host names which are allowed or
# denied XDMCP connection access to this machine. When a remote
# display (typically an X-termimal) requests login service, Dtlogin
# will consult this file to determine if service should be granted

# To control Indirect queries:
#
# pattern list of hostnames and/or macros ...
#
# To use the chooser:
#
# pattern CHOOSER BROADCAST
#
# or
#

# To define macros:

# %name list of hosts ...
#
#
# The first form tells dtlogin which displays to respond to itself.
# The second form tells dtlogin to forward indirect queries from hosts
# matching the specified pattern to the indicated list of hosts.
# The third form tells dtlogin to handle indirect queries using the
# chooser; the chooser is directed to send its own queries out via the
# broadcast address and display the results on the terminal.
# The fourth form is similar to the third, except instead of using the
# broadcast address, it sends DirectQuerys to each of the hosts in
# the list
#
# In all cases, dtlogin uses the first entry which matches the terminal;
# for IndirectQuery messages only entries with right hand sides can
# match, for Direct and Broadcast Query messages, only entries without
# right hand sides can match.
#
# Information regarding the format of entries in this file is

# Entries...

* grant service to all remote displays

#
# The nicest way to run the chooser is to just ask it to broadcast
# requests to the network - that way new hosts show up automatically.
# Sometimes, however, the chooser can't figure out how to broadcast,
# so this may not work in all environments.
#

* CHOOSER BROADCAST any indirect host can get a chooser

#
# If you'd prefer to configure the set of hosts each terminal sees,
# then just uncomment these lines (and comment the CHOOSER line above)
# and edit the %hostlist line as appropriate
#

# %hostlist host-a host-b

# * CHOOSER %hostlist #



# #####################################################################
#
# ENTRY FORMAT
#
# An entry in this file is either a host name or a pattern. A
# pattern may contain one or more meta characters (`*' matches any
# sequence of 0 or more characters, and `?' matches any single
# character) which are compared against the host name of the remote
# device requesting service.
#
# If the entry is a host name, all comparisons are done using
# network addresses, so any name which converts to the correct
# network address may be used. For patterns, only canonical host
# names are used in the comparison, so do not attempt to match
# aliases.
#
# Preceding either a host name or a pattern with a `!' character
# causes hosts which match that entry to be excluded.
#
# When checking access for a particular display host, each entry is
# scanned in turn and the first matching entry determines the
# response.
#
# Blank lines are ignored, `#' is treated as a comment delimiter
# causing the rest of that line to be ignored,
#
# ex.
# !xtra.lcs.mit.edu # disallow direct/broadcast service for xtra
# bambi.ogi.edu # allow access from this particular display
# *.lcs.mit.edu # allow access from any display in LCS
