I sent a document with IPP - using https://address:631/printers/XXX or with IPP+TLS - using ipp://address:631/printers/XXX??encryption=required. Then I looked into capture file and IPP packets were malformed (printer output was correct). Is it normal (because of TLS) or is something wrong with it? When I try normal ipp://address:631/printers/XXX everything is OK.

Thank you.

Well, can you provide a capture file?

can you please add the frame number(s) of the "malformed packets".

Wireshark tries to dissect the TLS packets as IPP protocol.

You need to "decode as" the tcp.port 631 traffic and map it to SSL after HTTP/1.1 101 Switching Protocols message has flown. From then on it's all TLS
