NAME

xtlpc - LPD protocol server driver  

SYNOPSIS

xtlpc -H hostname -f ctrlfile [ -F fifo ] [ -S host ] [ -P ptrname ] [ -N ] [ file ]  

DESCRIPTION

xtlpc is a terminal server program for use by GNUspool where the destination is an LPD protocol server. Input is usually taken from standard input, or from the supplied file name.  

OPTIONS

-H hostname
This is the host name or IP address to be used to access the printer. In GNUspool setup files, it may be appropriate to substitute $SPOOLDEV or $SPOOLPTR here.
-f ctrlfile
This specifies the location of the control file, typically xtlpc-ctrl in the internal programs directory.
-S hostname
This is the host name or IP address of the sending host, in the cases where gethostname(3) does not yield an appropriate answer.
-P ptrname
The LPD protocol supplies a name to the printer. By default, this is taken from SPOOLPTR, i.e. the name given as the name of the printer under GNUspool. Some terminal servers require a specific name to be given to the printer, perhaps to select which printer, or printer option of several is to be specified. This option overrides this printer name in the protocol.
-F fifo
Take input from the named fifo rather than standard input or the supplied file.

This is useful in situations where the LPD protocol has to be run from a command line, i.e. a console session, and files sent to it by having GNUspool write to the fifo.

-N
Avoid sending zero length files, which confuse some servers.
