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 an RPC method call to return. This protocol is parallel to the Print System Remote Protocol [MS-RPRN], but the two protocols support slightly different functionality.
