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
SPOOLDIR alternative location for spool directory SPHELPDIR help files directory
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.
gspl-rpr(1), gspl-start(1), gspl-stop(1), gnuspool.conf(5), gnuspool.hosts(5), spshed(8).
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.
