In /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc, try changing the following:
"exec /usr/bin/X11/X -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp"
"exec /usr/bin/X11/X -dpi 100 "
The X server will not listen for external tcp connections (by default for
security reasons) unless the "-nolisten tcp" option is removed. You also
need to do this to get XDMCP to work. This "might "be your problem. Other
times I have seen this message is from the Xauthority file when trying to
open up a display (xterm) after su to root from a user account. There is a
solution for this too.... but I cannot recall exactly what it is. It has
something to do with modifying the xauthority file....I think.
