If GDM was listening for remote connections it would be on port 177, but sinceI have several questions for the list:
1. How do I get gdm on RH 9 to stop listening on port 6000 (e.g., for my laptop)
by default it doesn't do that, this isn't your issue.
Port 6000 is (by default) the port that the first X display will listen to for incomming
BTW, in fedrora beta/rawhide/core1 X tcp listen is disabled by
default. If need - it can be enabled by adding 'DisallowTCP=false' to
On RH 8, I added DisallowTCP=true to the gdm.conf file and it worked. I have tried in my gdm.conf file [security] section as described in http://www.jirka.org/gdm-documentation/x227.html
When I restart gdm or when I reboot, port 6000 is still open (nmap -s T <ip address>).
I hope it is fixed in Fedora (of course, I hope the docs also describe how to open it
back up for those that don't know this option).
Can I use the fedora gdm package on RH 9?
