Title : Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): Printer
Author(s) : H. Parra, T. Tronson, T. Hastings
Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-install-03.txt
Pages : 26
Date : 12-Apr-01
This document describes an extension to the Internet Printing
Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2566, RFC2565] and IPP/1.1 [RFC2911, RFC2910].
Various client platforms require that some setting up take place at
the workstation before the client can properly submit jobs to a
specific printer. This setup process is sometimes referred to as
printer installation. Most clients need some information about the
printer being installed as well as support files to complete the
printer installation. The nature of these 'Client Print Support
Files' varies depending on the specific client platform, from simple
configuration files to highly sophisticated printer drivers. The
selection and installation process can be simplified and even
automated if the workstation can learn some key information about the
printer and which sets of Client Print Support Files are available.
