AirPrint on "Guest" network

Hi all,


Using IAP-105 devices running firmware version


I am not able to see AirPrint enabled printers on my "Guest" configured networks.  They show up just fine when they are connected to my "Employee" configured network.  Would there be something in the default "Guest" network configuration that would restrict the ability of IOS devices to detect AirPrint printers?

Re: AirPrint on "Guest" network

Assuming the printers are on the same subnet as the guests trying to connect to the printers, I would check the SSID Broadcast filtering option. If that is set to "All", then the AP will drop broadcast and multicast frames. This will prevent Bonjour from working (which is how a client communicates to a printer for AirPrint). Try setting Broadcast filtering to Disabled.

Hi.  The printer and clients are on the same SSID.  The Broadcast filtering is disabled (by default).  Works fine when printer and clients are on an SSID configured using "Employee" option.

i think you might have ports block on your guest network. Make sure these ports are allow.
