    I believe the option has to be enabled in the kernel. That would be more of a xorg forum type question though.

    aah never mind got it!

    i wanted to remote connect to the X server on backtrack but since tcp port 6000 was not listening that's why my previous guestion..

    but got is working, since X doesn't explicit need to listen on this port and since using ssh for connection is much safer....

    just need to modify the /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    and make sure that X11Forwarding is set to yes

    now beeing able to connect to x trough ssh
