If I understand you well; you want to allow other machines to open diplay on 
your machine?

Some display manager lauch X without allowing this. For kdm you have to edit 


and removing the "nolisten tcp" option (and restart the server)

after that you have to allow other machine to connect:
login (graphically) and type
xhost +<name of the machine you authorize to connect>
or xhost - to allow all machines to connect
