  Impressario versions 1.0 and 1.1 were sold in two packages: client
  and server. The server software contained filters and device plug-ins
  for sending print jobs to a printer connected directly to a host
  workstation.  The server software was installed on the system that
  had the printer physically attached to it.  The Client software
  provided a graphical interfaces to the printing and scanning
  software.  The client software was installed on systems that would
  access the Impressario print server via a network connection.

  Starting with Impressario version 1.2 and IRIX 5.2, the client
  product has been obsoleted.  The graphical interfaces to printing now
  ship as part of IRIX 5.2 and later, so any SGI system can now be an
  Impressario client.  If your clients are all running IRIX 5.2 or
  later, you need only install Impressario Server on the system that
  has the printer or scanner physically attached to it.

  Prior to IRIX 6.2, scanner support, imprint, and psroff were not bundled;
  they were still part of Impressario Server.  IRIX 6.2 and higher includes
  both the client and server software as a standard part of the operating
  system (the PostScript RIP required for non-PostScript printers is still
  licensed separately).
