ipptool sends IPP requests to the specified printer-uri and tests and/or displays the results. Each named testfile 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 testfile format is described in ipptoolfile(5).
The following options are recognized by ipptool:
5 --help Shows program help.
5 --ippserver filename Specifies that the test results should be written to the named ippserver attributes file.
5 --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.
5 --version Shows the version of ipptool being used.
5 -4 Specifies that ipptool must connect to the printer or server using IPv4.
5 -6 Specifies that ipptool must connect to the printer or server using IPv6.
5 -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.
5 -E Forces TLS encryption when connecting to the server using the HTTP "Upgrade" header.
5 -I Specifies that ipptool will continue past errors.
5 -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.
5 -Pfilename.plist Specifies that the test results should be written to the named XML (Apple plist) file in addition to the regular test report ( -t ). This option is incompatible with the -i (interval) and -n (repeat -count) options.
5 -S Forces (dedicated) TLS encryption when connecting to the server.
5 -Tseconds Specifies a timeout for IPP requests in seconds.
5 -Vversion 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.
5 -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.
5 -c Specifies that CSV (comma -separated values) output is desired instead of the plain text output.
5 -dname=value Defines the named variable.
5 -ffilename Defines the default request filename for tests.
5 -h Validate HTTP response headers.
5 -iseconds Specifies that the (last) testfile should be repeated at the specified interval. This option is incompatible with the -X (XML plist output) option.
5 -l Specifies that plain text output is desired.
5 -nrepeat-count Specifies that the (last) testfile should be repeated the specified number of times. This option is incompatible with the -X (XML plist output) option.
5 -q Be quiet and produce no output.
5 -t Specifies that CUPS test report output is desired instead of the plain text output.
5 -v Specifies that all request and response attributes should be output in CUPS test mode ( -t ). This is the default for XML output.
The ipptool program returns 0 if all tests were successful and 1 otherwise.
