Problem discovering printers accross different VLAN

Hello,

 

I have VLAN 1 for DATA and in this VLAN i connected the printers.

I have VLAN 80 for Wireless and in this VLAN i connect an IPAD

 

Discovery printers using IPAD didn't find any printers.

 

If i connect the IPAD to VLAN1 all working fine

 

i tried also to enable bonjour gateway but still not works.

 

Firewall is MX and all switch and AP are Meraki.

@Massimo :  Select one or more VLANs from which client Bonjour requests can originate. Requests on these VLANs will be forwarded to the Service VLANs.

Re: Problem discovering printers accross different VLAN

Bonjour (what Apple uses) does not work across subnets.  So you have to use a Bonjour gateway.

 

If you have MR, read this:

https://documentation.meraki.com/MR/Client_Addressing_and_Bridging/Bonjour_Forwarding 

If you have MR, read this:

https://documentation.meraki.com/MX/Other_Topics/Configuring_Bonjour_forwarding_for_the_MX_Security_... 

 

Note that the devices you want to access (aka the printers) can't usually be on the native VLAN, aka VLAN1.  You normally have to put them on another VLAN.

@Massimo  as mentioned check your bonjour gateway settings, we use this ourselves and it does work. If you can get it to work please post a screenshot of your settings.
