11. LPR - Remote Printing Program

This chapter describes how to start and use the LPR program supplied with XConnectPro.

LPR is a client implementation program that allows you to access printers attached to remote computers on your TCP/IP-network. The computers must support the Berkeley Line Printer protocol.

You need to have access to the remote computer that will accept print jobs from you. Your PC name must be defined in the /etc/hosts.equiv or /etc/hosts.lpd file of the remote system.

While using LPR, you can:

  • Enter data required to connect to a remote computer and to choose a target printer

  • Specify print job options (a number of copies, titles and banner pages, a file type)

  • Print one or more files from your PC on the remote printer

  • View print jobs in the queue, remove jobs from the queue.

You can run multiple LPR sessions simultaneously in separate windows.
