Jeff, That's news to me. The IBM KB doesn't mention it: There is no guarantee that printers that support Remote Output Queues (RMTOUTQs) will also support IPP (or vice versa). In order for a *LAN IPP device description to work, the following hardware requirements must be met: 1 The internal network interface card (NIC) or external print server must support the Internet Print Protocol (IPP). 2 The internal network interface card (NIC) or external print server must be at a firmware or microcode level that supports IPP printing. 3 If the printer is connected to an external network adapter, it must be connected using an IEEE 1284, bi-directional printer cable, and the print server must be in BITRONICS, BI-DIRECTIONAL or ECP/MLC mode A number of printers and printer servers from a variety of manufacturers support IPP, including certain models of IBM Infoprint printers, HP JetDirect print servers, and Lexmark Marknet printer servers. For a complete list of values for the RMTLOCNAME parameter for various print servers, please refer to the following document: Wonder if it was maybe requirement #3 above.
