when i open console as user, it welcomes me with:


access control disabled, clients can connect from any host

never had this message before, dont have a clue what might have caused it.

any suggestions how i can turn this off ?

thx in advance.

sounds like the text that you get if you run:

$ xhost +

this will allow any other machine on the network to run xwindows application on your machine but the visual xwindow image be on their screen. kind of wierd. you should not really use xhost like this.
