If you don't need it open you should close it. If you startx manually use this startx -- -nolisten tcp. There's also another way to close it but don't know because I use this method.

edit your /usr/X11R6/bin/startx file, and change the "serverargs=" to:
Quote:
serverargs="-nolisten tcp"
If you are running locally, you can do this safely.
