IPP Printing in Microsoft

I implemented IPP printing in Novell and it worked fantastic.  I wanted to do something similar in Microsoft to make mapping/remapping folks simplier.  I can't seem to find any real good documents on how to do this in Microsoft.  I see that the RPC method is recommended.  How do I set this up server side?  Do I build my own intranet page or is that apart of the package?  Last, what is your feedback on doing this?  Share your experiences with doing it - good, bad, and ugly.

Environment - Windows 2008 Standard Server, workstations are XP and windows 7.

Thanks.

Thank you.  That had some helpful information.   I was looking more for a document that talked about IPP web page and setting it up on the administrative side.

Ok, I installed IPP printing as a role, my web page is up, and I added a printer.  The port is listed as WSD.  My original goal was to have a web page where my users could go and map the printers themselves via IPP.  Is the WSD port the equivalent to IPP?  Trying to get clarification on the web printing in Server 2008.  I added a printer, mapped it, and it works great.  I just want to go over some of the alternatives.  The documentation isn't as good as I had hoped.  Thanks.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

I think I found my answer - this is IPP.  However, does anyone know how to display the printers on the web page alphabetically?

ok, it looks like it reindexes every so often automatically.  All the printers are in alphabetical order now.  Cool stuff.

If you get an error creating a printer - try taking of auto-detect and selecting standard tcp/ip and take off auto-detect on the drivers.  All of them worked like a charm after that.
