I want to allow my wireless clients to print to Bonjour printers, but here is my challenge:
My corporate network is set up with 802.11x RADIUS authentication and MAC-filtering. Printers will not be able to join that network. So it looks like I have to create a separate wireless LAN for the printers.
I looked at the document from Meraki https://documentation.meraki.com/MR/Client_Addressing_and_Bridging/Bonjour_Forwarding
but I am a little unclear on a couple things. Does this "service VLAN" need to be something I set up on my switches in advance? Should it be the same VLAN that the printers join? Or is this some logical thing that runs behind the scenes?
Solved! Go to Solution.
so just to recap:
I create a new wireless network with PSK authentication. Map it to a VLAN/subnet on the network, and make sure it can communicate via layer3 to the existing corporate wireless.
then go into the policy on both wireless networks, enable bonjour forwarding, and specify that new printer VLAN?
