Configuring AirPrint Settings

You can register information, including the name of the machine and installation location, that is used for identifying the machine. The settings required for using AirPrint can be configured remotely using the Remote UI.

Configuring Settings Using the Remote UI

Start the Remote UI and log on in System Manager Mode. Starting the Remote UI
Click [Settings/Registration].
If you are using a mobile device, such as an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, read "click" as "tap" in this section.
Click [Network Settings] [AirPrint Settings].
Specify the required settings, and click [OK].
 [Use AirPrint]
Select the check box to enable AirPrint. To disable AirPrint, clear the check box.
 [Display Errors for AirPrint]
If you are printing with AirPrint and there is an issue with the print file and the file does not print correctly, you can use this setting to choose whether error screens appear on the control panel.
 [Printer Name]
Enter the name of the machine. If an mDNS name has already been registered in [mDNS Settings] ([Network Settings] in [Preferences] (Settings/Registration)), 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.
Restart the machine.
Turn OFF the machine, wait at least 10 seconds, and then turn it ON.

Configuring Settings from the Control Panel

Select <Set> on the <Home> screen. <Home> Screen
Select <Preferences> <Network> <Use AirPrint>.
The Administrator PIN must be entered in order to configure this setting.
Select <On> .
If you select [Use AirPrint], the following settings in <TCP/IP Settings> are set to <On>.
IPP Print Settings
Use IPv4 mDNS
Use IPv6 mDNS
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> (Making DNS Settings) of IPv4 is also changed automatically. In this case, add the machine to the Mac again.
When AirPrint is in-use, <Use IPv4 Name for mDNS> is fixed to <On> for the mDNS name of IPv6.
Entering the printer name makes it easier to identify multiple printers that support AirPrint.
