I agree that it would be a simplification to scan for IPP, AppSocket, SMB and CUPS printers from one interface at once (but I wouldn't allow for more than 255 IP addresses at one time, due to limiting the intrusiveness).

One more option is to use "scli" 0.3.1 (which now supports a "run scli scan" sub command), and it scans using SNMP.

What *should* also be implemented is support for the new CUPS 1.2 backend called "snmp".

This does not do "portscanning" (like currently kaddprinterwizard does), but makes an SNMP broadcast asking for all printers to respond.

Responses then are used to specifically query each responding node for IPP, JetDirect and LPD support.
