Linux Mandrake and Windows

I'm new to the list, and I'm sorry if this has been answered before. I =
looked, but couldn't find it.
I have Linux Mandrake running on one machine, with a dual boot to =
Windows 2000. I have a Windows 98 machine running cygwin/xfree. When I =
boot to Linux and log in (through X 3.6), I open up a terminal and type=20
to allow all connections. Then I go to cygwin/xfree on the Win98 =
machine, and type into the bash window=20
(the ip of the Linux machine). Then I try to execute=20
on the Win98 machine, and it says connection refused.
Reverse the process: =20
in the cygwin/xfree environment, and=20
in the Linux environment. =20
in Linux, and I get connection refused.
Then I boot into W2k, and do the same thing all over again, except =
everything is in cygwin/xfree. Now it works just fine.
What am I doing wrong while under Linux? Is it because Linux is using =
X3.6, and cygwin/xfree is using 4.2.0?
