I believe there is a version of the WinSTon emulator that supports the IPF disk format from the Software Preservation Society.

I have googled and can't find this version. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance

That sounds highly unlikely. IPF format specs are just recently published.

The modified version of WinSTon is mentioned here on the SPS site: -

All what I can say after looking it: forget it, it is very old. In meantime new, more powerful emulators like Steem and Hatari appeared.
In them is already support for 10-11 sector/track formatted floppies (images), and all it with regular ST or MSA formats.
Even it there is something more, protection related done in Winston, it surely can not compete with Pasti.

Hatari is basically winston/stew (or at least an updated version of the former emulators)
