Dan was nice enough to respond (off SLUG) to my first query "Looking
for an LPD Server" and I currently have the software he is refering to.
The version he sent me is for 7.2, and after a couple of modifications it's
working (nicely, as he says!) in 8.0.
I plan to keep the software current (since I need to use it!), so if
anyone would like a copy (now or later) please send me mail.
