Remote client cannot display on local xfree-cygwin

I just installed the latest cygwin and cygwin-xfree86 on Windows 2000
Professional, service pack 2.

I am able to start the Xserver using the script provided
with the cygwin-xfree86 distribution.  I can start an xterm client
locally, too.

I would like to start an xterm client on a remote machine and have it
display on my local cygwin-xfree86 X server.  However, this does not
work.  It appears that the X server is not even listening to port

If I shut down the cygwin-xfree86 X server, and start the MicroImages
MIX X server, then the same remote machine is able to display an xterm
client on the local MIX X server.  This indicates that networking is
functional on my local machine, generally speaking.

Any suggestions?  Thanks.
