Hi, the Port 6000 is X. As it is a robust flexible GUI at allows connections from/to other computers. Closing the port im unsure of, but u can protect it, just change your /etc/hosts.deny and change the entry to ALL:6000 (i think thats the format). that will deny all hosts to port 6000.
alternativly use ipchains/iptables to block out the port on a certain interface.

Enode has a good suggestion, or, you could make X stop listening on that port by editing
and changing the line which reads
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -nolisten tcp
Oops, forgot to add
You will need to restart X after that.
