IPP printers

If you enhance security by encrypting communication between the server and the device with SSL when using IPP printing (IPPS), you will need to change the destination-command attribute to use the pioipps backend program.

The necessary command is:

pdset -cdestination -x "destination command='/usr/lpd/pio/etc/pioipps printerURI'"
where printerURI is the URI of the printer that can print data using the IPP protocol.

  • The resource path /ipp/print is commonly used by IPP Printers. However, there is no strict requirement to follow this convention and older IPP Printers used various different locations. Consult your printer documentation or the printer's Bonjour (DNS-SD) registration information to determine the proper host name, port number, and path for your printer.
