IPP Sample Implementations
This code provides sample implementations of IPP Clients, Printers, and Proxies. It is largely based upon the CUPS software, with substantial changes to the ippproxy and ippserver implementations to make them more general-purpose and configurable.
The ippfind program implements Bonjour/DNS-SD discovery of IPP printers and can be used to find and test specific printers. Among other things, it is used as part of the IPP Everywhere Printer Self-Certification test tools.
The ipptool program implements a generic IPP Client interface that allows a user to send different IPP requests and act based on the response from the Printer. Among other things, it is used as part of the IPP Everywhere Printer Self-Certification test tools.
The ippproxy program implements a generic IPP Proxy interface that allows you to connect a local IPP or PCL printer to an IPP Infrastructure Printer such as the ippserver program.
The ippserver program implements a generic IPP Printer interface that allows you to host shared printers using the IPP Shared Infrastructure Extensions as well as support local printing or document processing.
The ipptransform program is a generic file conversion utility that is used primarily with ippserver to support rasterization of JPEG and PDF documents for IPP Everywhere and HP PCL printers.
