Using the font server
The font server can be started in one of several ways:
from the command line (useful for testing the font server)
from a system startup file such as /etc/rc2.d/S91fontserv;
There are two parts to the process of using the font server:
Start the font server on a machine with fonts installed.
That machine will provide fonts, via the font server, to other
machines on the network.
Configure the X servers on the network to request fonts
from the font server.
There are several ways you can configure font services, including
setting up multiple font server machines, setting an optimum
number of servers to quickest possible access to fonts, limiting
the number of fonts available, and changing the TCP
ports used by the font server.
