HOW WINLPD WORKS
LPD Server of Winlpd has an interface similar to the Printers folder in your
Windows NT4.0/2000/XP machine. Once the user has installed Winlpd application it starts
automatically and keeps listening for requests from remote machines.
After you have installed a Windows printer from the control panel you have to use the "Add Printer"
izard to add any of the Windows printers to be shared using Winlpd. Once a printer is shared it appears
inside the Winlpd window. Winlpd receives requests from other clients and hands it over to the Windows
printer in raw format.
Winlpd can be easily configured after installation to run as a service on Windows95/98/Me and on Windows NT4.0/2000/XP. This helps in making LPD services available even if there is no user logged in.
This feature is not available in the demo version of the software.
The LPR client in Winlpd provides LPR based printing to Windows from within Windows
applications and also as a command line option.
