       pawserv - CERNLIB program for serving PAW histograms remotely


       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:

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


       o /etc/inetd.conf - specifies how inetd should call pawserv


       o paw(1)
       o inetd(8)
       o inetd.conf(5)

       pawserv  is  part of the CERNLIB CSPACK package, which is documented at     (PostScript)     or (HTML).
