Thanks for your answer.

Which logfile to look at to proof there is a "nolisten" problem ?

As all the others computers Bi work perfectly, the problem can only be 
on B5; I see in /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc a line "ServerArgsLocal=-nolisten 
tcp", but I failed to fix the problem: neither comment the line, neither 
taking off "no" is efficient...

I also thought I finally found the trick when I saw the line "exec 
/usr/bin/X11/X -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp" in the file 
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, but unfortunately, there is exactly the same 
line in B3, which works very well...
