Description Philip Ashmore 2008-07-08 17:20:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052912 Firefox/3.0

Description of problem:
According to

Once can start an openoffice / staroffice instance listening on local port 8100, accepting connections from localhost.

This would be useful for UNO development if it worked.
Otherwise any UNO application ends up starting up another instance, taking about 5 seconds on my machine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ /usr/lib/ '-accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;StarOffice.ServiceManager'
2. netstat -a|grep 8100

Actual Results:
Nothing is listening on port 8100

Expected Results:
netstat should have reported soffice listening on port 8100

Additional info:
I'm reporting this here in case it's a Fedora porting issue rather than an problem.

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2008-07-08 17:39:08 UTC
it works, OOo takes time to launch, give it a while. Try and 
telnet localhost 8100
and it should connect and you get 
"" with some binary
goo on each side of the string
