Table 1–2 Supported URI Formats


URI Format 



This printer URI scheme can only be used to contact a local LP service to access the print queue that is specified in the URI. 



Use this URI format to contact local or remote print services for the purpose of accessing a print queue on the host that specified in the URI. An optional #extensions can be specified, for example, #solaris. When #solaris is specified, the host processes Solaris extensions to the RFC-1179 protocol during print job submissions.
