PaperCut NG/MF LPD service

PaperCut NG/MF ships with its own LPD service that supports support cross platform printing. This service provides end-to-end support for customers who use PaperCut NG/MF and LPD.

The PaperCut LPD Service allows print administrators to connect disparate systems to a Windows print server, allowing the server to accept jobs from

  • Mac Clients/Servers

  • Linux Clients/Servers

  • AS400 Servers

  • Mainframes

  • …any other client or server that supports LPR printing.

The PaperCut LPD Service also allows administrators to continue to support methods that bypass any authentication requirements to print to a Windows Server. Conversely, as a legacy protocol, LPR has limited security and administrators should make sure that LPD complies with their organization’s security policies
