Hi Joe

There are other mailing lists on Linuxchix including Techtalk which is a
good forum for tech questions etc.

Your answer would be to nmap the IP address of the box in question here
it's myself and you can see that port 6000/tcp is open for X11.

Starting nmap 3.30 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2003-08-27 19:42
Interesting ports on kanga (
(The 1641 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
Port       State       Service
22/tcp     open        ssh
139/tcp    open        netbios-ssn
6000/tcp   open        X11

In your firewall script you'd have to close port 6000. Or stop 'X' from
doing it in the first place which I think you can do. Somehow?
