I don't know of any printer that supports *IPDS by default. It's always an
extra cost option.

If supported, the configuration report printed from the printer would give
some indication.

This page doesn't show AFPDS/IPDS as an optional data stream supported by
the printer...

Hi all,

How can I determine of a printer (to be specific, Ricoh Aficio MP C5000)
supports IPDS? I am trying to configure a device with type *IPDS, I can
start the writer, but when I try to print a spoolfile it stays in the "PND"

The message on the printer is "Connection with device XXXXX is being
retried". When I use port 9100 the error code is 15 (The activation timer
(ACTTMR) value configured for the device expired before the device was
available.) and when I use port 5001 the error code is 22 (The device did
not respond to a connection request.).

However, I am not sure if this printer supports IPDS and I have been
trying to find this information on both the ricoh and ibm sites, but so far
no luck. Is there any way I can find this out?
