I am forwading this message to the IPP DL for discussion. Is the T.120
protocol definition available for free somewhere on the Internet, and if so
can you give us a reference? Generally, the IETF is not terribly keen on
using protocols to which there is no public access (or which you can only
get hold of by paying lots of $$$$). Nobody has so far suggested to use
T.120 as an alternative. Can you give us an idea about what it does and
why you think it would be suitable for IPP?
Please look at our web site at: http://www.pwg.org/ipp if you want to get
more up=to-date information about the IPP project or want information about
how to subscribe to our mailing list.
