       pserver - NetWare print server

       pserver	[ -S server ] [ -h ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] [ -q queue name
       ] [ -c command ] [ -j job type ] [ -t timeout ] [ -d ]

       pserver is a program that connects to print queues on NetWare servers and  feeds  incoming
       print jobs to the Linux printing system.

	  -h is used to print out a short help text.

       -S server
	  server is the name of the server you want to use.

       -U user
	  user is the print server name at the server.

       -P password
	  password  is	the password to use for the print server at the server. If neither -n nor
	  -P are given, and the user has no open connection to the server, pserver prompts for	a

	  -n should be given if the print server does not require a password.

	  By  default,	passwords  are converted to uppercase before they are sent to the server,
	  because most servers require this. You can turn off this conversion by -C.

       -q queue name
	  queue name is the name of the print queue you want to service.

       -c command
	  When a job is received from the print queue, pserver forks off a new process, and feeds
	  the  job file to stdin.  command is the printing command that is executed for each job.
	  The default command is 'lpr'.

	  You can insert several flags into the command, preceded by %. These are  replaced  with
	  values retrieved from the queue structure for the print job.

	  %u: This field will be replaced by the name of the user who posted this print job.

	  %d: This field will be replaced by the job description field of this print job.

       -j job type
	  Each	job  in a NetWare print queue has a job type. For print jobs, this corresponds to
	  the number of the form the job should be printed on.	You  can  tell	pserver  that  it
	  should only receive jobs for one specific form from the queue. The default is -1, which
	  means that everything is received.

       -t timeout
	  Pserver is not informed by NetWare servers when new jobs arrive. So  a  polling  scheme
	  has  to  be  used. When there are no jobs to service, timeout tells pserver how long to
	  wait between two requests. The default is 30 seconds. When a job is  finished,  pserver
	  asks the NetWare server immediately for a new job, and does not wait timeout seconds.

	  Normally,  pserver  daemonizes itself.  -d tells it not to do so. This is useful if you
	  want to see the diagnostic messages that are printed when a error occurs.
