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

Title : Definition of printer: URLs for use with
Service Location
Author(s) : P. St. Pierre, S. Isaacson, I. McDonald
Filename : draft-ietf-svrloc-printer-scheme-03.txt
Pages : 18

This document is a submission to the Service Location Working Group
of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Comments should be
submitted to the srvloc@srvloc.org mailing list.

This document defines the 'printer' service type and the attributes
associated with it. This 'printer' service template is designed to
be used in conjunction with the Service Location Protocol, Version 2
[13], but it may be used with any directory service which supports
attribute/value pair registration.

The 'printer' service type is specified as an abstract service type.
It is expected that printers advertised with the 'printer' service
type may be accessible by one or more protocols. IPP [3] and LPR [2]
are two examples of printing protocols that may be used to perform
the actual printing.

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
