By default, there isn't a file.  You can create it as root if desired.  (in
/etc).  If I remember right, it should only be writable by root.

Note, you can also create /etc/X1.hosts, /etc/X2.hosts, etc, if you desire
to have multiple X servers running at any one time.

Subject: [CentOS] Xhosts file

I posted a question a few days back to see if anyone could tell me where 
the default X0.hosts file should/does reside.  Searching the system 
turns up nothing, and did not find any info in any of the man pages, 
other than it would reside in /etc, but doesn't.  Setting a host access 
permission does not become permanent, and I'd really like to find out 
where the thing should be so I can solve that little irritant.
