On most platforms, the "Local" connection type is a UNIX-domain
socket. On some System V platforms, the "local" connection types
also include STREAMS pipes, named pipes, and some other mechanisms.
XFree86 listens on port 6000+n, where n is the display number.
This connection type can be disabled with the -nolisten option (see
the Xserver(1) man page for details).
So do you have two keyboards and two mice attached to the PC?
If so, I misunderstood what it was you were trying to do.
The site I referred you to, http://startx.times.lv is true multi-user. Every user (we have three) has his own X session running on his own screen, KB & mouse. All three work away merrily feeling entirely that they are alone on the machine. No networking, socket or other such complications. It's great.
