    Internet printer through https
    Hi,

    I'm trying to configure an internet printer in my mac. The protocol of the address I have been given is https. The printer wizard asks for a host, not a full url. Is this kind of printer supported by os x?
    Any workarounds or instructions?

    Thanks.

    Julian

    Thanks! After following the instructions, the printer appears to be configured. When I try to print I receive this message: "Unable to connect to IPP host: Bad file descriptor".

    I have been given this url:

    https://printers.feweb.vu.nl/printer...ter01/.printer

    I think it shouldnt be a problem. Any clues?

    Thanks!

    Hmm ... I would try knocking '/.printer' off the end and see. The format for IPP URIs is generally:

    http://host/printers/queue

    so the .printer might be causing an issue.

    If it's not that, I would recommend checking at the server end in the logs to see if anything shows up.

    Same problem here: Unable to connect to IPP host: Bad file descriptor
    I also followed the tutorial from al&d (http://www.ald.utoronto.ca/computing...k/ipp_osx.html) in order to connect from Mac OS X 10.4.7 to an https ipp printer (I think it's on a Windows Server 2003).

    When trying to print, I get the error:
    "Unable to connect to IPP host: Bad file descriptor"

    I tried to remove the .printer extension, but again the same error. I also tried to get rid of the credentials (user/password) from the URI because they contain non-alpha numerical characters. But then again: "Unable to connect to IPP host: Bad file descriptor"

    Who knows an answer? Thanks a lot.
