[TriLUG] x windows nolisten option
Wed, 17 Apr 2002 14:50:18 -0400
I didn't read your initial post carefully. After a second reading, it looks
like you've already tried what I suggested below. FWIW, I too am running
KDE on RHL7.2 and it worked in my case. Only thing I did differently is I
used 'nmap -p 1- localhost' to determine that the port was closed. Don't
know if that makes any difference?
