    Are ftp and http part of IPP 1.1 specs.

            No, but IPP is mapped on top of HTTP/1.1 and references it.

    Will all ftp printer/server support ftp of print jobs. What I mean is that
    if there is an IPP 1.1
    compatible printer, will I be able to ftp to it so that the transmitted
    data is printed.

            No, this is not part of IPP.
            If you use the optional IPP feature for print-by-reference, then
    your printer is likely to be able to fetch documents using FTP, but this is
    different from sending document to a printer using FTP.

    Also do IPP compliant printer/server always accept PostScript(PS) binary

            IPP does not require that all printers support a particular print
    format like Postscript.
    However, I think you will find that most IPP printers do support Postscript
    in their implementation.
