[clug] IPP interface into windows printing?

Users want to be able to print.

Trouble is, there are more printers
 than I want to maintain on a print server.

But all these printers are up on windows print servers
 and CUPS works over Internet Printing Protocol (IPP).
So I just need to set 2 environment variables,
 and I can print with no local configuration required.

Do windows print servers offer their printers over IPP?

Is there a way of getting the printer list
 out of a windows print server?

It's a big ask but it would be good,

Think twice before giving government a mandate to lie.
