Let Xserver connect via XDMCP automatically?


Dear community,

I have a server and a couple of workstations, all running Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit. The server is set up to accept XDMCP requests for the clients to remotely connect. But here it comes: If i want to connect to the server i have to go via the Actions menu in GDM and choose XDMCP. Is there a possibility to let it connect automatically to the server via XDMCP? I've read some stuff about modifying a Xservers file, but haven't got much info about how to modify it for my purpose...

I hope someone has a answer for me, or at least some tips to start looking :D.

Thanks in advance!
