NAME

in.lpd - BSD print protocol adaptor

SYNOPSIS

/usr/lib/print/in.lpd

DESCRIPTION

in.lpd implements the network listening service for the BSD print protocol specified in RFC 1179. The BSD print proto- col provides a remote interface for systems to interact with a local spooling system. The protocol defines five standard requests from the client to the server: starting queue pro- cessing, transfering print jobs, retrieving terse status, retrieving verbose status, and canceling print jobs. in.lpd is started from inetd (see inetd(1M)). inetd waits for connections on TCP port 515. Upon receipt of a connect request, in.lpd is started to service the connection. Once the request has been filled, in.lpd closes the connection and exits.

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. non-zero An error occurred.
