2 Using Apple® AirPrint™ with Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology Enabled Devices User Guide
What are the requirements for
AirPrint requires that devices are discoverable via the Bonjour® protocol. Bonjour is
Multicast DNS (mDNS) based. In some networks, mDNS traffic is not allowed to be
passed across subnets. In these instances, a device will only be discoverable if the
Apple® device and the AirPrint-capable Xerox® device are on the same subnet.
Xerox® Device Requirements
The Xerox® device can be configured for wired or wireless networking. There is no
requirement for a Xerox® device to be wirelessly enabled. The Apple iOS device will be
using wireless. For AirPrint to work with a wired printer, the wired and wireless network
segments need to be bridged and allow mDNS traffic to be routed between them.
For outgoing facsimile support through AirPrint, the Xerox® device must have at least one
embedded fax line configured for at least the ‘Send’ functionality.
