Maybe try:

	xhost +LOCAL:

It does not work:

# xhost +LOCAL; DISPLAY=localhost:0.0 xterm
xhost:  bad hostname "LOCAL"

Did you try with '+LOCAL:' instead of '+LOCAL'?

The colon is important.

Indeed, furthermore if you need to do remote X, using X
forwarding through SSH should be preferred and won't require you
using “xhost” or removing “-nolisten” to Xorg parameters:

	ssh -YC user@remotehost

I do not need encryption since all machines are in the same network segment. So I prefer not to use ssh.
