xserver connection refused

I have an xserver for windows on my winbox and I can
connect to my debian system by:

start xserver on windows box...

telnet 'url-of-linux-box'

xterm -display 'url-of-windows-box':0.0

... now running

But this doesn't work the other way. 
I get a 'connection refused by host' message when I
try to connect from one linux box to another.  I guess
there is a  config file somewhere that needs to be
modified to open up the xserver on the linux box to
allow connection by a remote system.  Where do I look?

BTW same error message on RedHat (6.1) as debian (2.1)
so this must be an XFree86 thing?
