View Full Version : [ubuntu] X11 tcp listening on port 6000

March 4th, 2010, 04:30 AM
I am trying to setup Xdmx on my desktop and an old laptop.

I need to turn on X11 tcp listening on port 6000. I commented out -nolisten tcp in /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc but when I do nmap port 6000 is still not open.

If I stop gdm and just run X and then do name I can see that port 6000 is open but when I start gdm port 6000 is closed. I figured that somewhere gdm is closing the port but I can't figure out where.

Any help is appreciated.

Never mind I got it working over ssh. But if anyone know how to speed up Xdmx I would like to know. I am already using blowfish, if you know anything else please share.
