Are you sure that the hostnames are being resolved correctly? It is
easy to forget to check nsswitch.conf. If there are any name resolution
problems xdmcp will not work. You should also check custom.conf in
/etc/gdm to make sure that;
is set in the [security] section. AFAIK you don't need to enable xfs.
