IAP103 broadcast filtering and HP Airprint

Hello everyone!

 

Please help, I just installed 4 x IAP103. Network is working fine, but we have a HP Printer that we use via Airprint. To enable this i know broadcast filtering has to be disabled end under more, services, airgroup settings i have to select allow all to use airprint. When i disable broadcast filtering, the network becomes instable, drops speed 70% and clients randomly disconnect. Anyone got a workaround?

You should be able to enable broadcast filtering and use Airprint if it is allowed in Airgroup.

Hi Colin,

 

No, when only airprint is activated in airgroups the printer is not visible in the network...

Type "show airgroup blocked-queries" to see if your printer is being blocked somehow..

To see if mdns printer queries are being blocked for some reason, either from your client or the printer.

You would SSH into the Virtual Controller and execute it.

Allright.

 

Click on the Airgroup Bar and see if you see the printer as a client or a server.
