Why can't I print from my laptop (or an experimental subnet) using IPP?


lns61 is not running an IPP server, and we will not enable it on each individual printer. This implementation of the IPP protocol is known to be buggy. LPD, however, is time-tested and works like a charm ... usually ;-). Please see PrintingAtCLASSE for instructions on printing from most LEPP systems.

On Linux, we do have a CUPS (which uses the IPP protocol) server that broadcasts our print queues to systems on our public subnet. However, we do not have the infrastructure in place for these broadcasts (actually, multicasts) to make it to our protected subnets. This is on our to-do list, (see RT ticket #7447 for more information) but has to be a lower-priority than several other projects and issues that we are working on. When this is complete, laptop users should see a list of available queues that they can use with no configuration.

This page will be updated when IPP printing is possible from our protected subnet (where most laptops live).
