In the absense of requesting-user then it is assumed to be the HTTP
identified user - which may or may not be anonymous.

We always ignore requesting-user in the IPP packet.

I found that the "cancel-job" request from the MS IPP driver for
Win95/98 (wpnpins.exe 5.00.101.2000) doesn't contain "requesting-
user-name" attribute. According to the model document, requests
without username are assumed by "anonymous" user.

However the "print-job" request from the same MS client contains
"requesting-user-name". So that with proper IPP server implementation,
it is "forbidden" to cancel an "owned(having a requesting-user-name)"
job by "anonymous" user.

It should be fixed, or I will implement my IPP server to NOT to
compare usernames when cancelling jobs.

I'm sorry if you alread saw this message before.
I posted this mail on Mar 17 but it seems to not deliverd to the ML.
