this is wrong, X can use unix sockets as well. it doesn't need tcp port
6000 for local connections. It is in /etc/.X11-unix/X0
if you don't use xdm, use
startx -nolisten tcp

or if you use xdm, edit /var/X11R6/lib/xdm/Xservers and add
-nolisten tcp to the line
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 vt07
(it looks like ":0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 vt07 -nolisten tcp"

Changes in Xservers do not affect sessions with startx !
(hopefully startx takes -nolisten tcp ... I didn't try. Maybe
"startx -- -nolisten tcp" works, if the other doesn't work)
