I'm afraid I cannot help you there. I run several Internet servers on Red 
Hat and Fedora, and of course none of them run X (or GNOME, Nautilus, fam, 
etc.) since they don't need it. The desktops that we have on Linux are 
simply set up right off the bat to accept *nothing* from the outside, and 
since I couldn't remove portmap it didn't occur to me to simply stop it. :-)

Someone with more Clue will have to help us here.
