CUPS & Samba: Driver Download

I followed the instructions on [1] and was finally able to set up the printer drivers for our workstations.

There's just one question left: Will windows-users be able to download the printer drivers when they intend using IPP? Or does driver download work with SMB-Printing mode only?

Unfortunately, I never came accross a statement, so I'm a little confused, wondering, why there appears 'The server on which <printer> resides does not have the correct driver installed. ...' when I try to install a CUPS printer using IPP.

When I install it using \\<server>\<printer> the drivers get downloaded correctly.


Thanks for your help
Kind regards
