Subject: Disabling X and KDM from listening on a port.

Hi I am currently running RedHat 6.2 with KDE
1.1.2. Currently I find X11 listening on port 6000
and KDM listening on port 1024. I want to continue
to run both X and KDE but I have no need nor do I
want them listening on a port for incomming
connections. How do I disable them from listening
on a port while still allowing me to run both X
and KDE?

Thanks in advance,

P.S Sorry if this question is painfully dull for
any of the readers of this mailing list, I'm still
new too Linux and Linux security.
