ippproxy

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.

ippserver

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.

ippserver(8)

ipptool

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.
