This memorandum discusses the use of the Internet Print Protocol [IPP] as a facsimile service. IPP has most of the functional attributes necessary to be a successful real time facsimile service on the Internet with little or no modification to the core IPP V 1.0 protocols [IPP-MOD] [IPP-PRO]. IPP compliance with the legal and general custom and practice surrounding General Switched Telephone Network [FAX] will require some modification to the behavior of IPP clients and the common usage of time/date stamping on local IPP device transactions and logs.
