Description tkunz 1999-09-09 18:52:27 UTC
When I run xfs, it doesn't accept connections from another
machine.  After stracing it, it seems that it doesn't call
bind() on the AF_INET socket it creates, it only binds to
the local AF_UNIX socket in /tmp.

Grab the latest errata XFree86 RPMs. These have xfs
changed so that you can specify if you actually want
to listen to a network port or not.
