At this point I've determined that the X11 server is not listening to 
tcp at all. Netstat and other commands show the port is not even 
listening. Now according to the X11 info the -nolisten option would have 
to be set to do this. However, going through the files and looking for 
nolisten options, I do not see anything set to tell it to DisallowTCP. 
Nor do I find a command to force tcp on. Anyone here familiar with the 
Xorg options that might be able to suggest a way to force tcp on?
