Yes FC1 does use TCP ports for X11.


No, it doesn't. Just one example of many:

Again with the XDMCP session management access.

RTFM about gdm.conf.

You do not need to use kdm,gdm or xdm to run X.



I agree, but the default configuration is to use runlevel 5, which has TCP
disabled. If you choose to start X a different way, you can use
"-nolisten tcp" (which is the same option passed by GDM).


Selective editing can't save you. If you don't know what your talking
about, admit you don't and learn. If you have an Xserver running you
will have and open TCP port = 6000 + display_number. If you do not have
a port listening, then you are not running X, you may be running some
other graphical interface but it is not X.



RTFM for Xserver. It is the example for "-nolisten".


I admit it, I was wrong.

Having RTFM for Xserver and X, I did find the -nolisten directive.

I also discovered that X will work with DecNET, TCP/IP or IPC, not just
TCP/IP as I believed.

MHarris ranks above you in my "knowledge of X" scale.


That goes for me too.

Do you know where I might find some Crow? :-[
