As I mentioned in another post in this thread, this file wont help you
to achieve your goal.
If all you need is X+ddd, you should try the XFree86 and ddd from
the openqnx site. If you need to run some photon apps occasionally,
you can use phinx.
If your main goal is to run photon apps, and run x apps only occasionally.
you can probably just kill xphoton, after the photon starts up…
and only run xphoton when you need to run your x app.
You can probably modify the “ph” script in this case…
non-local hosts. Does anyone know the right combination?
I’ve also tried creating a /etc/X0.hosts file to disallow non-local hosts,
but that doesn’t seem to have any effect either.
Anyone from QSSL that can shed any light on whether this is possible, and
If it’s not possible, what’s the cleanest way to prevent Xphoton from
launching at boot time (or auto-kill it at boot time)?

Our network security staff have complained that our QNX 6 boxes present

a way to restrict access to Xphoton to only the local machine, such as
would do with xhost commands? Or if not, is there an easy way to
entirely, while still allowing QNX X applications (primarily DDD) to
with a remote X server?
i THINK /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy
is the file setting access permissions etc, it should be standard x11
file , so you might find somewhere online what it is to contain.
