Title : Design Goals for an Internet Printing Protocol
Author(s) : F. Wright
Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-req-03.txt
Pages : 52
Date : 19-Nov-98
This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all
aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an
application level protocol that can be used for distributed printing
using Internet tools and technologies. This document takes a broad look
at distributed printing functionality, and it enumerates real-life
scenarios that help to clarify the features that need to be included in
a printing protocol for the Internet. It identifies requirements for
three types of users: end users, operators, and administrators. The
design goals document calls out a subset of end user requirements that
are satisfied in IPP/1.0. Operator and administrator requirements are
out of scope for version 1.0.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
