Can anyone tell me if the LPR / LPD services in Workflow are Unix LPR and if it is creating Unix LPR ports which use the default LPR RFC source and destination ports (TCP:721-731, TCP:515).

You can control the LPD Input service's behaviour through the Workflow preferences. Through these, you can restrict the ports to the basic range (721-731) and elect to strictly enforce RFC 1179.
On the LPR side, which can also be controlled through the Workflow Preferences, you can also restrict the ports to 721-731.

Thank you for your response Philippe, but can you tell me if PlanetPress is piggy-backing on the UNIX Print Services that comes with all Microsoft operating systems. Or do O.L. install their own Unix Print Services.

The Workflow tool provides its own LPR and LPD services.

It is important to mention that although you can have both Windows' LPR and Workflow's LPR running on the same machine, LPD cannot. It is either the one from Workflow or the one from Windows.
