[lug] x2x on KRUD/FC2

I finally got cd's working and got an install of KRUD based on Fedora 
Core 2. It is up and I am running KDE. I have networking up as well. Now 
I am trying to get x2x working, which lets me share mouse and keyboard 
across machines. It's simply a remote display type app. I am also trying 
a simple test of konsole --display remotemachine:0.0, which is also 
failing. Turning off firewalling does not help. xhost +remotemachine 
says it accepts the other machine, but still does nothing to help. Did 
the newer Xorg server change things to where xhost no longer works? Did 
the newer Xorg server remove remote UDP and TCP without some magical 
incantations? I really need to display from one machine onto another or 
else it is useless to me. Seeing as I am the only one using it and it is 
behind a firewall, I want to just allow all remote X11 apps to be 
allowed from my first machine to my 2nd machine. Suggestions? Checklists?

PS: Ping and a few other functions like web browsing do work from that 
machine so I know networking basics are correct.
