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.

V. Reaching the authors

VI. Recompiling

 Install the standard AmigaOS 4.0 SDK and use the Makefile provided.

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.
