Yes, both client and server need support for TCP Fast Open. That support amounts to a change to both the TCP stack and the TCP socket API, both of which are implemented by the kernel. Without kernel support (or a user space TCP implementation and the privileges necessary to use it) neither endpoint can make use of TFO.
