Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Easily
Steps to Reproduce:
1. xset +fp tcp:/hostname:7100
2. run openoffice.
3. printtool also will not open.
By default, the font server does not listen on a TCP socket. You have
to configure it to do so, and poke a hole in any firewall or other
network filtering mechanisms that may be in use, and restart the font
server. Restarting the font server will require restarting the X
server as well.
Closing as NOTABUG.
