command to enable X -tcp nolisten

Well, subj. I want to disable listening on 6000 port. My friend told me to edit .bashrc to make an alias so every time i $startx or $xinit it would load already with -nolisten flag. But i dont know what the correct way of setting this is, help?

Yeah thanks. Would never figure out 3 dashes. Nmap shows that port 6000 is closed now.
