Abstract

This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an application level protocol that can be used for distributed printing using Internet tools and technologies. This document gives some advice to implementers of gateways between IPP and LPD (Line Printer Daemon). This document describes the mapping between (1) the commands and operands of the 'Line Printer Daemon (LPD) Protocol' specified in RFC 1179 and (2) the operations, operation attributes and job template attributes of the Internet Printing Protocol/1.0 (IPP). One of the purposes of this document is to compare the functionality of the two protocols. Another purpose is to facilitate implementation of gateways between LPD and IPP.

Mapping between LPD and IPP Protocols

Status of this Memo

This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet

community. It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.

Discussion and suggestions for improvement are requested.

Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

IESG Note

This document defines an Experimental protocol for the Internet

community. The IESG expects that a revised version of this protocol

will be published as Proposed Standard protocol. The Proposed

Standard, when published, is expected to change from the protocol

defined in this memo. In particular, it is expected that the

standards-track version of the protocol will incorporate strong

authentication and privacy features, and that an "ipp:" URL type will

be defined which supports those security measures. Other changes to

the protocol are also possible. Implementors are warned that future

versions of this protocol may not interoperate with the version of

IPP defined in this document, or if they do interoperate, that some

protocol features may not be available.

The IESG encourages experimentation with this protocol, especially in

combination with Transport Layer Security (TLS) [RFC 2246], to help

determine how TLS may effectively be used as a security layer for

IPP.
