ProcedureHow to Configure IPP Client Data

Under PAPI support, the bsdaddr value (server,q) is converted to it's equivalent printer-uri-supported value (lpd://server/printers/q), when the printer-uri-supported value is missing from the printers database. However, in some situations, such as when there is a mix of client systems and the queue is on an IPP capable server, you might need to manually configure this data.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Open the /etc/printers.conf file in a text editor. Add the desired IPP client configuration data.

    For example:

    /etc/printers.conf:queue: \
        :bsdaddr=server,queue,Solaris: \
