configuring X11 and x11vnc on a machine without any real input/output

Okay, heres the situation... I have a linuxbox without monitor keyboard or mouse. Id like to vnc to it and run some lightweight Desktop environment. Its running slack9 currently that was installed without any X components.

Installed X and ran xdm that created one local screen.

now as I try to run
xauth +
I get this error:

Xlib: connection to "localhost:0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

XOpenDisplay failed (localhost:0.0)

And the same error pops up when i run x11vnc

all other values to Display variable have been tried and I have tried it both as root and as a regular user...

Its a personal router box in otherwise very protected environment so security is unimportant at this state. I just want to get it running...
