How do I open port 6000 in Fedora 14

I am creating an X remote server in Fedora 14 because this task has become difficult to do in Debian-based Linux distributions. I want to know how to open port 6000 to make the computer listen for xdmx requests from another computer on the LAN

A lot of the configuration files that are mentioned throughout the internet are non-existent, also to command gdmconfig and gdmsetup don't exist either. I just want the port to be opened and the computer to be listening on it. How do I accomplish this?

Alright now I just opened the port with these command, (I thought I would provide them for the great Linux administrators around the world since there is very little information about this in the internet)
I added these lines to the /etc/gdm/custom.conf file
I rebooted, diabled the firewall, and then i ran these commands
#init 3 && init 5
I ran an nmap scan against to find the ports that were opened. Just like I wanted the port 6000 was opened but in the scan results nmap said that access was denied. I even tried the Xdmx command as a test and it was unable to connect to the xserver, here the command I ran
#Xdmx :1 -display
the terminal failed to connect to the server, I am wondering that if this has something to do with the access denied entry in the nmap scan. you tell me because I really want to make my tile display system already
