Now you've completely lost me ;-), yet I confuse easily.
I'm not aware of having set-up any firewalling on my box, it's just a mixed
bag of Debian from Progeny upto unstable. I have SmoothWall running on a
seperate box for my dialup, so I just don't worry about security on the local
side of things.
So, How, specifically, can I enable X to connect? I am guessing that port
6000 must be opened up somehow? Also, I remember various things about X
having it's own protection from outside connections, but I don't remember
where? I've been through this before when my Daughters first PC was a 486
running just an X server and connecting to my box using X -query 192.168.1.1,
but that was many years ago.
Thanks again for all the help for the clueless ;)
