IBM Updated Steaming LPR Driver Available

May 31, 2003 by Bob St.John

>Software Choice Intranet.
>Streaming LPR Port Driver for OS/2
>IBM Special Edition
>General Availability Release GM2
>Updated 05/28/2003

>Streaming Line PRinter (SLPR) is a streaming port driver >(SLPR.PDR) used to connect your computer to a printer or >print server via a TCP/IP connection. The driver uses Line >Printer Daemon (LPD) protocol as specified in RFC 1179. This >protocol is an almost universal way to send print data to >printers and servers. It is meant to be used as a alternative >to the PIPELPD0 (henceforth LPD0) port driver which is >shipped with OS/2.


>- Faster Throughput:
> Data can be sent to the printer almost as soon as it is
> generated as compared to the LPD0 driver which needs to
> wait until all the printer job is generated before it is
> sent.

>- Simpler Setup:
> The LPD0 driver requires a separate program (LPD.EXE) be up
> and running before it will work. Since the LPD program is
> communicating with the printer directly it has the status
> - not the spooler.

>- Better Error Handling:
> With LPD0 any problems are reported via LPD program and not
> the spooler. With SLPR there is a direct interaction with
> the spooler so error recovery is more intelligent.

>- User Specified Time-outs:
> With LPD the default is to wait indefinitely so out of
> paper or printer jams are not noticed for a long time. With
> SLPR any waits longer than the user specified time-out
> generates an easy to see pop-up notification.

>- More Ports: SLPR can have up to 64.
