I am currently developing a software IPP server, but I am having some
trouble with the printer-driver-installer attribute. I am using the
Windows 2000 IPP client to test our server, which is running on NT4.
During the process of creating a connection to an IPP printer on Windows
2000, the Add Printer Wizard seems to ignore the uri I am passing back
in the printer-driver-installer attribute of the get-printer-attributes
response. Instead the Windows 2000 client asks to install the drivers
locally from disk.
I understand that the driver installation process is not within the IPP
scope, so how are other IPP clients handling the
printer-driver-installer attribute? Does each client handle it in a
specific way, or is there some sort of universal standard for initiating
an installer? Any help or info on this matter would be much appreciated!
