Abstract

This document specifies the requirements and uses cases for some optional administrative operations for use with the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) version 1.0 and version 1.1. Some of these administrative operations operate on the IPP Job and Printer objects. The remaining operations operate on a new Device object that more closely models a single output device.

RFC 3239        IPP: Req. for Job and Printer Admin Ops    February 2002

1 Introduction

   The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is an application level protocol

   that can be used for distributed printing using Internet tools and

   technologies.  IPP version 1.1 ([RFC2911, RFC2910]) focuses on end

   user functionality with a few administrative operations included (for

   a description of the base IPP documents, see Appendix A).  This

   document defines the requirements and use cases for additional

   optional end user, operator, and administrator operations used to

   control Job objects, Printer objects (see [RFC2911]) and a new Device

   object.  The new Device object more closely models a single output

   device and has no notion of a job, while the Printer object models a

   print service which understands jobs and may represent one or more

   output devices.

   The scope of IPP is characterized in RFC 2567 [RFC2567] "Design Goals

   for an Internet Printing Protocol".  It is not the intent of this

   document to revise or clarify this scope or conjecture as to the

   degree of industry adoption or trends related to IPP within printing

   systems.  It is the intent of this document to extend the original

   set of operations - in a similar fashion t...
