1 Introduction

The Print System Asynchronous Remote Protocol supports printing and spooling operations between a client and server, including print job control and print system management. It is designed to be used asynchronously by clients whose implementations permit them to continue execution without waiting for a method call to return.

This protocol is based on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) protocol [C706] [MS-RPCE]. Its functionality is parallel to the Print System Remote Protocol [MS-RPRN], which is used synchronously.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
