Xlpd is a simple line printer daemon and print job management tool for Windows. It receives print jobs from remote servers using LPD protocol and sends the print jobs to a local printer. LPD has been the standard printing protocol in various operating systems including UNIX, Solaris, and Linux for many years. Since it is supported in almost every operating system, no additional setup is required on the remote side. It is a flexible printing solution that can be used as a simple LPD for a single PC or as a centralized printer server in companies to manage a large number of print jobs. Xlpd can work with Xmanager and Xshell to print the file you are working on in real time.
