Description of problem:
I changed the xfs startup program to run through port 7100. This is the
standard way we used to serve fonts to client machines and used to work in
the previos version of XFree.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Change port from -1 to 7100 in /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs
2.Change /etc/X11/XF86config to get fonts via tcp/host:7100
Actual Results: No fonts were served
Expected Results: Fonts should have been available to client machines and
to server itself.
This is not a bug, it is a feature. By default, xfs
is configured to not allow TCP connections.
