NAME

       pawserv - CERNLIB program for serving PAW histograms remotely

DESCRIPTION

       pawserv  is  the  server  for  distributed  PAW.   It listens for connections on port 345.
       pawserv is not in general run from the command line, but only via inetd(8).  From the  PAW
       client  side,  a  remote  PAW  session  is  invoked  with  the  RLOGIN  hostname  command.
       Distributed PAW is documented fully in chapter 8 of the PAW  user's  guide,  available  in
       PostScript format at this URL:

       http://wwwinfo.cern.ch/asdoc/psdir/paw.ps.gz

       Please  note  that  pawserv  receives  unencrypted  passwords over the network.  It should
       therefore be used only within a trusted LAN.
