       cups-lpd [ -o option=value ]


       cups-lpd is the CUPS Line  Printer  Daemon  ("LPD")  mini-
       server  that  supports  legacy client systems that use the
       LPD protocol.  cups-lpd does not act as a standalone  net­
       work  daemon  but  instead  operates  using  the  Internet
       "super-server" inetd(8). Add the  following  line  to  the
       inetd.conf file to enable the cups-lpd daemon:

           printer stream tcp nowait lp /path/to/cups/daemon/cups-lpd cups-lpd

       If  you are using the newer xinetd(8) daemon, add the fol­
       lowing lines to the xinetd.conf file:

           service printer
               socket_type = stream
               protocol = tcp
               wait = no
               user = lp
               server = /path/to/cups/daemon/cups-lpd

       The /path/to/cups/daemon is  usually  /usr/lib/cups/daemon
       or  /usr/libexec/cups/daemon,  depending  on the operating
       system.  Consult the cupsd.conf file for  the  local  set­


       cups-lpd  currently  does  not  perform any access control
       based  on  the  settings  in  cupsd.conf(5)  or   in   the
       hosts.allow(5)  or  hosts.deny files used by TCP wrappers.
       Therefore, running cups-lpd on your server will allow  any
       computer on your network (and perhaps the entire Internet)
       to print to your server.

       While xinetd has  built-in  access  control  support,  you
       should  use  the  TCP wrappers package with inetd to limit
       access to only those computers  that  should  be  able  to
       print through your server.


       The  -o  option  to cups-lpd inserts options for all print
       queues.  Most often this is used to disable the "l" filter
       so  that  remote  print  jobs  are  filtered as needed for

           printer stream tcp nowait lp /usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-lpd cups-lpd         -o document-format=application/octet-stream

       The  output  of the status requests follows RFC 2569, Map­
       ping between LPD and IPP Protocols. Since many LPD  imple­
       mentations  stray  from  this  definition,  remote  status
       reporting to LPD clients may be unreliable.
