printing on Lisp-m from Unix host
Well, I found *two* messages in the newsgroup comp.protocols.tcp-ip
(equivalent to the TCP-IP mailing list). One points to an online
description of LPD, and the other a published book. I haven't looked at

This book includes comprehensive descriptions of BSD sockets, Xerox
XNS, and AT&T's System V Transport Layer interface. There are chapters
TFTP, BSD lpd protocol, BSD rsh/rlogin protocol, BSD rmt (remote tape
drive) protocol, and a few miscellaneous topics such as remote
procedure calls, network performance, Internet/inetd services, and
security (including a pretty clear description of Kerberos). If you
have any interest at all in networking in a BSD environment, you will
probably want to get a copy of your own right away.
Tons of real source code is included.
