Printer Support for iPrint

I work for state government and I've been asked by another agency to confirm
that the Kyocera FS-9520DN printer will support iPrint. The printer is a
network laser printer with an Ethernet jack and support for both TCP and
LPR. It's my understanding that the only protocol that a printer must
support in order to work with iPrint is IPP, but the specs document for the
printer says nothing about IPP. I have asked the agency to contact Kyocera
to confirm that the printer supports IPP.

My basic question is; What does a printer need to support in order to be
compatible with iPrint? Do I have it right--only IPP is required--or am I
missing something?

Thanks for any help that you can offer.

IPP is used to print from workstations. The only thing needed by the printer
is that it supports LPR and has a driver that can be installed by iPrint.

Re: Printer Support for iPrint

Thanks! That helps.

I suppose that I could download the driver and just try uploading it to the
iPrint server. Short of doing that, is there any way to know prior to
purchasing a printer if the driver can be installed by iPrint?

No. FWIW, even the most stubborn drivers can be handled by Tommy Mikkelsen's
tool from Cool Solutions, cannot remember the name, even if I used it today,
but look per author.
