There is currently no such thing as an IPP Server defined in the IPP Model.  If you check the archives you can see there once was a Server object but it was removed years ago.

The IPP Model defines no Print Server, so it is up to any implementation to define any functionality.

The IPP Model defines no Print Server, so it is up to any implementation to define any interface.

Note, however, that there is a separate effort to define a standard interface called Server-Device-Protocol (SDP).  See 

http://www.egroups.com/list/sdp/info.html

and

It's not a requirement of IPP.
