Making X server not binding 0.0.0.0 or listening


Hey All,

I'm trying to execute X server (automatically), which will not bind to 0.0.0.0 (port 6000) - meaning X server will not listen on generic interface.

If it's possible, I'd prefer X server not to listen at all (and communicate through other IPC if needed), is there a way to make it not listening at all? -nolisten flag or something like that? (and do it automatically, every reboot).


Also, Is there a way to make X server bind to 127.0.0.1(localhost) instead of 0.0.0.0(generic interface)?


It should be in one of the configuration files or the start-up command to run X.


PLEASE DO NOT SUGGEST USING FW TO BLOCK IT, since it will not help me (I want to solve the problem, not to hack-myself-a-dirty-patch).


Thanks.

Close... "-nolisten tcp". How you get it to do that by default, though, depends on how you are starting X. Are you using a display manager? If so, which one?
