AirPrint on different VLans
billsecond last edited by
Simply put, I set up VLANS, VLAN1 - LAN, Printers, etc... VLAN2 - Mobile Devices.
I can't print using AirPrint from my iPhones, the phones can't see the VLAN1's Printers.
How can I set this up? I set up a rule, but that didn't capture anything.
I know this has to be possible.
In case anyone asks, I have HP Color LaserJet MFP M477fdw.

First of all, LANs or VLANs, there is not difference.
These are all LAN for an Airprint point of view.
This is what I have :
A LAN 192.168.1.0/32 with 3 printers that are support "AirPrint".
A second LAN called "PORTAL", 192.168.2.0/32 - it's a captive portal - which allows clients to use my Internet connection using a lot of AP's etc.
I installed the Avahi package on pfSense.
I placed this firewall rule on my second LAN called "PORTAL" :
"Printers" is an alias for the all the IPv4 that belong to my Airprint printers (remember : Captive portal is IPv4 only).
When I connect my Phone to the Captive PORTAL network, and want to print something, my Phone proposes these 3 possible printers ... Me being an a LAN, and the printers are on another LAN.
Yeah you need Avahi installed and configured to be able to 'discover' the printers in a different subnet.
