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 processing, 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
information 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 connection. 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.
