Hello managers,

i've got no response to my question (see below).
We try to use a linux-fontserver now...

With regards,

original question:

Hello managers,

we have an environment with several different unixes (solaris, linux, 
aix, irix). For the distribution of fonts we still use (for "historical"
reasons :) the aix-fontserver xfs (which is a good reason for bad
feelings each day) So we try to move over to the sun-fontserver,
which is started by inetd.

Usually it works to "say"  xset +fp tcp/<sun>:<port>  without problems.
(<sun> means our sun-host and <port> the port for the fontserver)

But now and then the above command results in the following error-message
(on my linux-based "Xterminal-PC")

   X Error of failed request:  86
     Major opcode of failed request:  51 (X_SetFontPath)
     Serial number of failed request:  9
     Current serial number in output stream:  11

This does not mean anything to me :( aside from "it is not working".
A "kill -HUP <inetd_PID>" does not help.
But a reboot (of the sun) does help. My linux-session continues
while the sun reboots.

So what is my real problem? This is solaris-2.7 with most recent patches.

With regards,
