NAME
ipptool - perform internet printing protocol requests
SYNOPSIS
ipptool [ -4 ] [ -6 ] [ -C ] [ -E ] [ -I ] [ -L ] [ -S ] [ -T seconds ] [ -V version ] [ -X ] [ -c ] [ -d name=value ] [ -f filename ] [ -i seconds ] [ -n repeat-count ] [ -q ] [ -t ] [ -v ] URI filename [ ... filenameN ]
DESCRIPTION
ipptool sends IPP requests to the specified URI and tests and/or displays the results. Each named file defines one or more requests, including the expected response status, attributes, and values. Output is either a plain text, formatted text, CSV, or XML report on the standard output, with a non-zero exit status indicating that one or more tests have failed. The file format is described in ipptoolfile(5).
OPTIONS
The following options are recognized by ipptool: -4 Specifies that ipptool must connect to the printer or server using IPv4. -6 Specifies that ipptool must connect to the printer or server using IPv6. -C Specifies that requests should be sent using the HTTP/1.1 "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" header, which is required for conformance by all versions of IPP. The default is to use "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" for requests with attached files and "Content-Length:" for requests without attached files. -E Forces TLS encryption when connecting to the server using the HTTP "Upgrade" header. -I Specifies that ipptool will continue past errors. -L Specifies that requests should be sent using the HTTP/1.0 "Content-Length:" header, which is required for conformance by all versions of IPP. The default is to use "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" for requests with attached files and "Content-Length:" for requests without attached files. -S Forces (dedicated) SSL encryption when connecting to the server. -T seconds Specifies a timeout for IPP requests in seconds. -V version Specifies the default IPP version to use: 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 2.1, or 2.2. If not specified, version 1.1 is used. -X Specifies that XML (Apple plist) output is desired instead of the plain text report. This option is incompatible with the -i (inter- val) and -n (repeat-count) options. -c Specifies that CSV (comma-separated values) output is desired instead of the plain text output. -d name=value Defines the named variable. -f filename Defines the default request filename for tests. -i seconds Specifies that the (last) file should be repeated at the specified interval. This option is incompatible with the -X (XML plist out- put) option. -l Specifies that plain text output is desired. -n repeat-count Specifies that the (last) file should be repeated the specified number of times. This option is incompatible with the -X (XML plist output) option. -t Specifies that CUPS test report output is desired instead of the plain text output. -v Specifies that all request and response attributes should be output in CUPS test mode (-t). This is the default for XML output.
COMPATIBILITY
The ipptool program is unique to CUPS.
