pcl2afpd utility: starts the pcl2afpd daemon

Syntax

pcl2afpd [-C ConfigurationFile]

Description

Use the pcl2afpd utility to start the pcl2afpd daemon. The pcl2afpd daemon manages the PCL interpreter portion of the InfoPrint PCL transform program. You must start the pcl2afpd daemon somewhere on the network before you can use the pcl2afp transform command to transform PCL data streams for printing or transmission with InfoPrint.

The startsrv or start_server utility automatically starts the pcl2afpd daemon if it is installed and not running.

If the pcl2afpd daemon stops running, you can restart it by issuing this command:

/usr/lpp/psf/bin/pcl2afpd

InfoPrint uses the pcl2afpd daemon configuration file to determine the default parameters of the pcl2afpd daemon. The /usr/lpp/psf/pcl2afp/pcl2afpd.cfg file is installed with InfoPrint, and InfoPrint uses it as the default configuration file. You can, however, copy the configuration file, use an editor to edit the copy of the file, and rename it so that you can customize the pcl2afpd daemon for your applications. After you make the modifications, you specify the new configuration file with the -C flag of the pcl2afpd daemon utility.
