Assign Static IP for printer on google cloud

Hi, 

I have a brother printer on the google cloud print that regularly goes offline. I have assigned the printer a static IP http://192.168.2.250. How do I restrict the IP address range from the meraki dashboard?

 

Thank you.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Assign Static IP for printer on google cloud

This reaches out to the Google cloud, correct?  You have not created an inbound NAT, correct?

 

If so, you don't really need a firewall rule.  Nothing can "get in".

All correct. I also didn't think I needed a firewall rule, but I can't understand why despite the printer being assigned a static IP the printer continues to go "offline" every few days and needs to be reregistered to the cloud. I'm not the only one with this issue. Might be a google cloud print issue as it is in beta.

I'll guess it is either a bug with the printer firmware or a bug with the Google cloud print solution.
