       lnpd   [-emseconds]   [-f]   [-l]   [-mnumber]   [-n]   [-pport]   [-r]
       [-ttty_device] [-vlevel]

DESCRIPTION

       lnpd is a LinuX daemon that allows multiple clients  to  connect  to  a

FILES

       /dev/ttyS0
              The default device for lnpd. (Also See -t: in OPTIONS, above).

       /usr/share/doc/lnpd/examples/lnptest.c
              sample BrickOS code to be built and downloaded to your RCX. This
              code allows you to quickly ascertain that  the  lnpd  daemon  is
              working with your RCX and lnpd installation.

       /bin/lnptest
              a  simple  test  program which uses lnpd to communicate with the
              lnptest program downloaded into your RCX for testing  with  this
              program.
