Xerox Printer Access Facility (XPAF)
| XPAF provides a path to print Xerox, AFP, PCL and PostScript documents on feature-rich Xerox printers, all without modification to existing applications.With XPAF as your print manager, you have complete control of your Xerox printing environment. XPAF enables management and distribution of Xerox printer resources, while providing the ultimate in security for sensitive resources. Resources are converted to the appropriate format for the destination printer, insuring data integrity and format compatibility independent of the destination printer type.
| Host-based printer resource management
Transparent data conversion
