And for those who don't have X manual pages installed on
their desktops, you need to modify this file on the device:

To have the argument "-nolisten tcp" in the line giving ARGS
to the X server.

Note that messing this up will make your device fairly useless
as  without X starting, you don't have an UI for the device.

PS. However, I expect anybody knowing anything about Linux security
already to know what argument to give to X server... :-)
