can you actually ping the server IP?

Of course I can ping it. Using putty, I even can connect to management system on that server and work with it, but fonts for it don't load.

check that you can contact it successfully by retrieving a list of the fonts that it provides. You can do
this using the fslsfonts command, as in the following example:

Code: Select all

fslsfonts -server IP : 7100

This should display a long list of available fonts.

It shows me huge list, so huge that terminal can not show all of them in window.

so it's there but won't let you access it.
double check that the user is part of the font server and has been granted access.

If there was problem with user or access, then it would not work on Linux Mint 16 too, but on Mint16, all work perfect. Maybe on LM16 was some package what LM17 does not have?

the only real difference could be the way iptables are handled on Mint17,
do you use a local firewall?

No, in local network we don't use firewall on linux machines.
