xtnetserv - remote server process
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.
gnuspool.hosts host/client names and descriptions
gnuspool.conf master configuration file
int-config message file
spshed_reps error log file
spufile0 user data
alternative location for spool directory
help files directory
xtnetserv uses 2 ports:
(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
to communicate with the API library.
The port numbers are set up in the /etc/services file when GNUspool is
gspl-rpr(1), gspl-start(1), gspl-stop(1), gnuspool.conf(5),
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.
