I. Warning

 This version doesn't implement any security features.


II. Prerequisites

 You will need at least AmigaOS 4.0 installed on your computer.


III. Installation

 Copy the lpd binary to your SYS:Utilities or some other directory.

 Launch the Internet preferences program.
 Select the "Servers" section.
 Press the "New..." button to add a new inetd server.
 Pick the "printer" service from the list.
 Click "Program" and select where you installed the lpd binary.
 Make sure "Active" and "Use socket I/O streams" are both checked.

 After you save your Internet preferences the lpd server will be
 immediately available for use. No reboot required.


IV. Using lpd

 The lpd daemon is currently hard-coded to print whatever it receives
 directly to PAR: and nothing else.

 More options could be added. Please email with your requests.

 lpd.debug is also included which can be used to trouble-shoot problems.
 It will output all sorts of useful debug to the default serial port.

VI. Recompiling

VII. Future

 This is a very basic implementation of lpd and more features could be added.
 Feel free to send in your request.


VIII. Acknowledgements

 Steven Solie:
  Thanks to Juergen for creating the original version. I used it as a
  basis for this new version which should have fixed most of the bugs
  in the original.

  Also a big thanks goes out to the OS4 development team for bringing
  AmigaOS back from the binary dustbin.

 Juergen Schubert:
  I want to say "Thank you!" to the AmiTCP-team for providing this great
  protocol stack. If you want to include an enhanced LPD to your distribution,
  feel free to contact me.
