So this was a lot easier than trying to figure out how to get an XDMCP login propmt on the new flavors of linux login screen:

On the SGI box Toolchest --> System --> Utilities --> Enable Remote Display

Then on the linux host, in a console window (choose one):

yum install xnest
zypper install xnest
apt install xnest

Finally run this command:

Xnest -query host_to_connect -geometry 1280x1024 :1
