in.lpd(1M)		System Administration Commands		    in.lpd(1M)

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 pro-
       tocol 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, 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  connec-
       tions  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.

       The following exit values are returned:

	0    Successful	completion.
