# The fontserver will default to using port 7100 if not overridden.
# Historically in AIX (4.1 and 4.2) 7500 is used and specified here.
# To restore this default, simply uncomment the following line.
# port = 7500

Once you have made your changes to the /usr/lib/X11/fs/config file you then run the following:

xfsconf

When this script is run, you can start the fontserver sub process by entering the following:

startsrc -s xfs
0513-059 The xfs Subsystem has been started. Subsystem PID is 19746.

In this case, the system has given the font server subsystem a PID of 19746.
