Title : Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): The 'ippget'
Delivery Method for Event Notifications
Author(s) : R. Herriot, C. Kugler, H. Lewis
Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-notify-get-04.txt
Pages : 35
Date : 26-Jul-01
This document describes an extension to the Internet Printing
Protocol/1.0 (IPP) [RFC2566, RFC2565] and IPP/1.1 [RFC2911, RFC2910].
This document specifies the 'ippget' Delivery Method for use with the
IPP Event Notification Specification [ipp-ntfy].The 'ippget' Delivery
Method is a 'pull and push' Delivery Method. That is, when an Event
occurs, the Printer saves the Event Notification for a period of time
called the Event Notification Lease Time. The Notification Recipient
fetches (pulls) Event Notifications using the Get-Notifications
operation. If the Notification Recipient has selected the option to
wait for additional Event Notifications, the Printer continues to
return (push) Event Notifications to the Notification Recipient as
Get-Notification responses as Events occur.

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.
