How to enable printer discovery?

    Wired clients can discover network printers easily. WiFi clients are unable to see a list of available printers. Seems like this could be related to Bonjour or Airgroup. Can anyone offer suggestions for troubleshooting? Airgroup is enabled on the MM with centralized mode. Under services we have an entry for AirPlay but I think that is unrelated to printer discovery.

    Bonjour discovery should work if (1) client and printer are in the same vlan (2) drop broadcast and unknown multicast is unchecked.  To get around that, you would enable airgroup.  Airprint should be what you are looking for.  More detail about configuring Airgroup is in the Airgroup Service Deployment Guide here:  https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=a00106566en_us
