LPD Service

The LPD Service (LPDSVC) enables client computers to print to the Line Printer Daemon (LPD) service on this server by using TCP/IP and the Line Printer Remote (LPR) protocol. This service is part of the Print and Documents Services feature of the operating system.

This service is not installed by default. It can be added by using the Turn Windows Features on or off option in the Control Panel. After this service is installed, its default startup type is Manual. When the LPD Service is started it logs on by using the Local System account by default.

The LPD Service is dependent upon the following system components:

  • Print Spooler
  • HTTP
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • DCOM Server Process Launcher
  • RPC Endpoint Mapper
  • TCP/IP Protocol Driver
