NAME

       xtnetserv - remote server process

SYNOPSIS

       xtnetserv

DESCRIPTION

       xtnetserv is the remote server process for the GNUspool spooler and document management
       system. It serves 3 purposes; firstly it accepts jobs from other hosts submitted by
       gspl-rpr(1), secondly it accepts jobs and administration requests from DOS and Windows
       machines, and finally it supports API operations.

       It is normally invoked by gspl-start(1).

       Information, in respect of other machines to connect to is read from the file
       gnuspool.hosts.

FILES

       gnuspool.hosts host/client names and descriptions

       gnuspool.conf master configuration file

       int-config message file

       spshed_reps error log file

       spufile0 user data

ENVIRONMENT

       SPOOLDIR
           alternative location for spool directory

       SPHELPDIR
           help files directory

INTERNET PORTS

       xtnetserv uses 2 ports:

               gsnetsrv

       (N.B. no second "e") to accept incoming jobs on TCP from gspl-rpr(1), and on UDP from the
       DOS/Windows interface, and 2 further ports

               gspoolapi

       to communicate with the API library.

       The port numbers are set up in the /etc/services file when GNUspool is first installed.

SEE ALSO

       gspl-rpr(1), gspl-start(1), gspl-stop(1), gnuspool.conf(5), gnuspool.hosts(5), spshed(8).

DIAGNOSTICS

       xtnetserv runs as a "daemon process" and diagnostics, apart from those detected when it is
       first started, are not usually written to any terminal but to the file spshed_reps in the
       spool directory.

       In the event of any problems this file should be examined.
