Note that since X server 1.17, by default the server does not listen for TCP/IP connections, only accepting local connections on a unix domain socket. Users upgrading from monolithic X (Release 6.9 and earlier, available via setup before November 2008) should also see the announcement about modular X.
Details are available in the announcements here and here.
