[SOLVED] X Server not accepting remote connections after update

Hi everyone! After recent upgrade Xorg on my laptop not allows other machines to use him as a window server, just an example:

on laptop:

vitaly@trifon:~/VM$ ps aux | grep Xorg
root       499  2.7  1.3 393628 105276 tty7    Ssl+ фев17 139:48 /usr/lib/xorg-server/Xorg -br -novtswitch -quiet :0 vt7 -auth /var/run/xauth/A:0-rfwYma
vitaly   23338  0.0  0.0  10728  2272 pts/3    S+   08:01   0:00 grep --color=auto Xorg
As you can see, '-nolisten tcp' flag is absent.

vitaly@trifon:~/VM$ xhost
access control enabled, only authorized clients can connect
INET:192.168.2.2
INET:192.168.13.13

192.168.2.2 is my Virtual machine, which works perfectly before upgrade

if I try to start some graphics program, I see that:
[sandbox@sandbox ~]$ DISPLAY=192.168.2.1:0.0 xterm
xterm: Xt error: Can't open display: 192.168.2.1:0.0

Please tell me how can I let my server work?

Looks to me like 192.168.2.1 is not authorized.

Re: [SOLVED] X Server not accepting remote connections after update

192.168.2.1 is a server, where must i authorise him?
and I repeat, before one of last system updates this method worked perfectly, other machines (debian wheezy, ubuntu 12.01 LTS) wokrs by this method.

result of server's nmap scan

[sandbox@sandbox ~]$ nmap 192.168.2.1

Re: [SOLVED] X Server not accepting remote connections after update

If you want to be certain about the port, use

$ nmap -p6000 localhost

As far as I know, nmap scans the top 1000 used (known) ports which can be quite misleading sometimes.

Re: [SOLVED] X Server not accepting remote connections after update

No good results sad
first i scanned 6000 port, it was closed. i scanned random ports, all was "closed" too

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.22 seconds
[sandbox@sandbox ~]$ nmap -p6000 192.168.2.1

But scan result on working machine tells me that 6000 port is open (Debian Wheezy, dist-upgrade done yesterday, xorg-server was updated and restarted)

Re: [SOLVED] X Server not accepting remote connections after update

"-nolisten tcp" is now the default, so you need to explicitly add "-listen tcp" if you want remote connections. /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc would be the place to add it, I think.

Re: [SOLVED] X Server not accepting remote connections after update

I wish I had found this post yesterday.  I spent hours looking for the solution to this issue on a Linux Mint 17.3 "Rosa" installation.  For Mint 17.3 distros add the following to /etc/mdm/mdm.conf and reboot (may logout and back in will work but I didn't try).

[security]
DisallowTCP=false

[server-Standard]
command=/usr/bin/X -listen tcp -audit 0

I first replaced the "-nolisten tcp" with "-listen tcp" in /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc to no avail.  Thanks for your posts!

Re: [SOLVED] X Server not accepting remote connections after update

Why would you register to necrobump a thread when you aren't even using Arch?
