agspdld utility: starts the agspdld daemon


agspdld [-C ConfigurationFile]


Use the agspdld utility to start the agspdl daemon. The agspdl daemon manages the AGSPDL processor portion of the InfoPrint PDF and PostScript transform programs. You must start the agspdl daemon somewhere on the network before you can use the AGSPDL processor with the ps2afp or pdf2afp command to transform PDF and PostScript data streams for printing on IPDS printers.

If the agspdl daemon stops running, you can restart it by issuing the following command:

agspdld -C /usr/lpp/psf/ps2afp/agspdld.cfg

InfoPrint Manager uses the agspdl daemon configuration file to determine the default parameters of the agspdl daemon. The /usr/lpp/psf/ps2afp/agspdld.cfg file is installed with InfoPrint Manager, and InfoPrint Manager uses it as the default configuration file.

After you make the modifications, you specify the new configuration file with the -C flag of the ps2afp transform command when you transform PDF and PostScript files.
