NAME
lp5250d - start an AS/400 printer session
SYNOPSIS
lp5250d [OPTIONS] HOSTNAME
DESCRIPTION
lp5250d connects to an AS/400 over TCP/IP and provides a printer session emulating an IBM 3812 printer. The printer session works with scs2ascii and host print transform on the AS/400 to print AS/400 spooled files on a local printer. To end a printer session, send it a SIGTERM signal with kill(1). Printing support requires named session support, which is available for most recent versions of OS/400, but is only supplied with V4R3 and later versions. For V3R2, V3R7, V4R1 and V4R2, please see informational APAR II10918.
OPTIONS
Additional lp5250d options are described in the tn5250rc(5) man page. -u, --user=USER run lp5250d as USER -H, --help display this help and exit -v, --version output version information and exit
