TCP/IP Connections

Machines that can use TCP/IP for file and print sharing:

  • DEC VAX running Pathworks
  • DOS with TCP/IP
  • IBM Mainframes
  • LAN Manager
  • OS/2 with TCP/IP
  • UNIX and Linux
  • Windows 95, NT
  • WFW

For NT to print to TCP/IP printers hosted on UNIX computers requires:

  • TCP/IP print service
  • Creation of shared printer

REXEC

Requires a password. More secure than RSH.

RSH

Uses the .rhosts file to authenticate the user.

RCP

FTP

LPD

NT runs a Line printer daemon (LPD) service similar to that on UNIX computers. This allows computers using TCP/IP and the LPR command to send print jobs to NT computers.
