This Internet-Draft specifies the mapping between (1) the commands and
operands of the ''Line Printer Daemon (LPD) Protocol'' specified in RFC
1179 and (2) the operations and parameters of the Internet Printing
Protocol (IPP). One of the purposes of this document is to compare the
functionality of the two protocols. Another purpose is to facilitate
implementation of gateways between LPD and IPP.
This document is an informational document that is not on the standards
track. It is intended to help implementors of gateways between IPP and
LPD. It also provides an example, which gives additional insight into
WARNING: RFC 1179 was not on standards track. While RFC 1179 was
intended to record existing practice, it fell short in some areas.
However, this specification maps between (1) the actual current practice
of RFC 1179 and (2) IPP. This document does not attempt to map the
numerous divergent extensions to the LPD protocol that have been made by

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.
