yeees! "-nolisten tcp" was activated in startx. Together with the xhost
command I was able to make the first step:
A new display :1 is created, with the grey background of X and I can move the
mouse cursor between both machines
Now I'll see how to connect KDE to the new display, or better: how to use xdmx
