LPD input devices

Line printer daemon (LPD) input devices receive jobs submitted using the LPD protocol. The device specifies a control file to change LPD control file parameters for a job to a job properties file in Ricoh ProcessDirector property name=value format that the workflow uses.

The name of the LPD input device is the value of the printer option of the print command. If the receive_lpd_jobtype.cfg or receive_lpd_pdf_jobtype.cfg file is configured, the values of the job options of the print command are converted to Ricoh ProcessDirector job properties.

You must specify which hosts are allowed to submit jobs to LPD input devices.
