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.
