LP5250D(1)		    General Commands Manual		    LP5250D(1)

NAME
       lp5250d - start an AS/400 printer session

SYNOPSIS
       lp5250d [OPTIONS] HOSTNAME

DESCRIPTION
       lp5250d	connects  to an	AS/400 over TCP/IP and provides	a printer ses-
       sion emulating an IBM 3812 printer.  The	 printer  session  works  with
       scs2ascii  and  host  print  transform  on  the	AS/400 to print	AS/400
       spooled files on	a local	printer.

       To end a	printer	session, send it a SIGTERM signal with kill(1).

       Printing	support	requires named session support,	which is available for
       most  recent  versions  of  OS/400,  but	is only	supplied with V4R3 and
       later versions.	For V3R2, V3R7,	V4R1 and  V4R2,	 please	 see  informa-
       tional APAR II10918.

       Additional lp5250d options are described	in the tn5250rc(5) man page.
