NAME

ipptool - perform internet printing protocol requests

SYNOPSIS

ipptool [ --help ] [ --stop-after-include-error ] [ --version ] [ -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:

--help
Shows program help.:
--stop-after-include-error
Tells ipptool to stop if an error occurs in an included file. Normally ipptool will continue with subsequent tests after the INCLUDE directive.:
--version
Shows the version of ipptool being used.:
-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.:

EXIT CODE

The ipptool program returns 0 if all tests were sucessful and 1 otherwise.
