Allow print traffic between wireless and wired LANs

Does anyone have quick instructions for allowing print traffic between the wired and wireless LANs? I have a network with one Meraki AP. I don't allow traffic between the two LANs. But now someone wants to install a printer on the wired LAN and have it be accessible to wireless clients.

 

Thanks,

Rob

Re: Allow print traffic between wireless and wired LANs

are you trying to keep mobile traffic separate from other traffic and only grant them internet access?

Yes, that's right. I need to keep wireless traffic separate from wired traffic. I can allow print traffic, but nothing else.

so, if you are like me, you have setup a VLAN for your wireless traffic and have setup a Layer 3 outbound rule on the Router. you may be able to add a rule that allows traffic to the IP of the printer. another suggestion would be that you allow that user access to the LAN by setting up a different SSID. i have a mix of users and i do allow certain Administrative types to use my WLAN on the Corp side vs the Guest side.

This particular network is in a small remote office. They don't have VLANs, nor do they have the capability to have VLANs. So I guess just set up a Layer 3 rule on the WAP allowing traffic to the IP of the printer, using whatever port the printer uses?

my apologies. so i guess we should have started with your setup.  but the short answer is that you should be able to setup a route to "ANY" port to the IP of the printer going in and out to your WLAN.
