I’m trying to connect to a Canon ImageRunner (can no longer remember the exact model number…) network printer.
First I had to look for background regarding the topic; and I read that the most common protocols used for network printers are AppSocket/JetDirect and IPP, of which the second one was more recent and more “suggested” unless printer didn’t support it.
This MF box does support IPP and is indeed enabled. But before even attempting to install it, I wanted to test the IPP connection beforehand. I read this was done with
ipptool ipp://<ip_addr>/ipp <any>.test
But no matter how I tweak with the command, I always get error “Operation now in progress”.
Also I noticed in the printer settings that the IPP section has user and password fields…
Is it that IPP actually works with authentication? Or is the problem something else?
