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 (interval) 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 output) 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.
