PostScript interface for non-PostScript printers with IPP and IIS?

PostScript interface for non-PostScript printers with IPP and IIS?

Is it possible to use IPP and IIS to provide a PostScript interface for a printer that does not natively support PostScript?

The aim here is to provide a generic interface for printing over IPP, so that clients can standardize on a single driver (PostScript) instead of having to download drivers for different printers. I could do this with CUPS, but would like to know if it is feasible with IIS, as well.

While IPP uses HTTP as a transport it is a different protocol.

Without substantial filters/extensions to IIS you can't use it s an IPP server..
