in.lpd


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 protocol
     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,  transferring  print jobs, retrieving terse status,
     retrieving verbose status, and canceling print jobs.

     The in.lpd service is  managed  by  the  service  management
     facility, smf(5), under the service identifier:

     svc:/network/lp

     Administrative actions on this service,  such  as  enabling,
     disabling,  or  requesting  restart,  can be performed using
     svcadm(1M). Responsibility  for  initiating  and  restarting
     this  service  is delegated to inetd(1M). Use inetadm(1M) to
     make configuration changes and to view configuration  infor-
     mation for this service. The service's status can be queried
     using the svcs(1) command.

     in.lpd uses the config/log_from_remote property to allow  or
     disallow  remote access. The default value of this property,
     localhost, disallows remote access.

     inetd waits for connections on TCP port 515. Upon receipt of
     a  connect request, in.lpd is started to service the connec-
     tion. Once the request has been filled,  in.lpd  closes  the
     connection and exits.

EXAMPLES
     Example 1: Allowing Remote Access

     The following command allows remote access to in.lpd.

     # inetadm -m svc:/application/print/rfc1179:default bind_addr=""


EXIT STATUS
     The following exit values are returned:

     0               Successful completion.



     non-zero        An error occurred.
