Line printer daemon (LPD) refers to the protocol and programs associated with line-printer spooling
services that may be installed on various TCP/IP systems.
Some of the widely used systems which are supported by your all-in-one using LPD include:
Berkeley-based (BSD) UNIX systems
The UNIX configuration examples in this section show the syntax for BSD-based UNIX systems. The
syntax for your system may vary. See your system documentation for the correct syntax.
The LPD functionality can be used with any host implementation of LPD that complies
with the RFC 1179 document. The process for configuring printer spoolers, however, may
differ. See your system documentation for information about configuring these systems.
The LPD programs and protocol include the following:
LPD programs and protocols
Purpose of Program
Queues jobs for printing.
Displays print queues.
Removes jobs from print queues.
Controls print queues.
Scans and prints the files if the specified all-in-one is connected to the system.

an LPD process on the remote system where the files are to be printed.
