Configuring AirPrint Settings

You can register information, including the name of the machine and installation location, that is used for identifying the machine. You can also disable the AirPrint function of the machine. Use the Remote UI to change these settings.
For more information about the basic operations to be performed when setting the machine from the Remote UI, see Setting Up Menu Options from Remote UI.
Start the Remote UI and log in to System Manager Mode. Starting Remote UI
Click [Settings/Registration] on the Portal page. Remote UI Screen
If you are using a mobile device, such as an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, read "click" as "tap" in this section.
Select [Network Settings] [AirPrint Settings].
Click [Edit].
Specify the required settings.
[Use AirPrint]
Select the check box to enable AirPrint. To disable AirPrint, clear the check box.
[Printer Name]
Enter the name of the machine. If an mDNS name has already been registered in [mDNS Settings] (Configuring DNS), the registered name is displayed.
Enter the location of the machine. If a location has already been registered in [Device Information Settings] ([Device Management] in [Management Settings] (Settings/Registration)), the registered name is displayed.
Enter the latitude of the location where the machine is installed.
Enter the longitude of the location where the machine is installed.
Click [OK].
If you select [Use AirPrint], the following settings in <Network> are set to <On>.
IPP Print Settings
IPv4 Use mDNS
IPv6 Use mDNS
Use Network Link Scan
If you change [Printer Name] that you have once specified, you may be unable to print any more from the Mac that has been able to be used for printing so far. This phenomenon occurs because <mDNS Name> (Configuring DNS) of IPv4 is also changed automatically. In this case, add the machine to the Mac again.
Entering the printer name makes it easier to identify multiple printers that support AirPrint.
