Description Eve Kovacs 2001-08-31 19:47:29 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-6.2.1 i686)

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):

How reproducible:

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
3.Restart xfs

Actual Results:  No fonts were served

Expected Results:  Fonts should have been available to client machines and
to server itself.

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-09-01 11:14:59 UTC
This is not a bug, it is a feature.  By default, xfs
is configured to not allow TCP connections.
