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

            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.

    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.
