JSI Tip 6846. Some Printing Preferences options are NOT available when use use the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP)?

The Properties of a printer that uses IPP are missing some Printing Preferences options.

You will experience this behavior if you use a URL to connect to a printer and you use IPP.

IPP is used if you used the Add Printer Wizard and selected Connect to a printer on the Internet or on a home or office network AND you type the printer's URL directly into your Web browser, AND the IE security zone settings for Internet and Local Intranet are Medium or higher.

To resolve this problem, use RPC:

1. Use the Add Printer Wizard to either Find a printer in the directory or Connect to this printer.

2. When connecting to the printer, use Start / Run / \\PrintServer\Printer / OK.
