This has been discussed multiple times on this list.  TCP connections
have been disabled by default.

To quote
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2003-November/msg01877.html:

/etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf

change the following line:

FROM:

#DisallowTCP=true

TO:

DisallowTCP=false

Now restart gdm. Should work now.
