Our IPP server prototype is once again up and running on the public Internet. E-mail me if you'd like the URI.

Note: the server is connected to the Internet for interop testing. It is NOT available for downloading.

This version has some post-bakeoff fixes.

Some new features:

1. Support for many charsets (EBCDIC, even).
2. Support for multiple Printers.

Known "limitations":

1. Will not accept POSTs with Transfer-Encoding: chunked. However, under some conditions it will generate responses with chunked encoding!

2. Jobs remain in 'pending' state forever.

3. Some URIs may be returned with "ipp:" schemes.

4. NLO handling hasn't been updated to match the latest changes in the spec.

5. 'name' comparisons ignore Natural Language.

6. Error responses are always returned in utf-8 charset.

7. Responses may include an empty Unsupported Attributes group (legal but not recommended).

If you find any additional limitations, we'd like to hear about them!
