A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
directories. This draft is a work item of the Internet Printing
Protocol Working Group of the IETF.

Protocol for the Internet Printing Protocol
Author(s) : S. Zilles
Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-rat-03.txt
Pages : 9
Date : 06-Jul-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 on the Internet. There are multiple parts to IPP, but the primary architectural components are the Model, the Protocol and an interface to Directory Services. This document provides a high level overview of the architecture and provides the rationale for the decisions made in structuring the architecture.

The full set of IPP documents include:

Requirements for an Internet Printing Protocol
Internet Printing Protocol/1.0: Model and Semantics
Internet Printing Protocol/1.0: Protocol Specification
Rationale for the Structure of the Model and Protocol for
the Internet Printing Protocol

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
