You would need to configure Bonjour to broadcast services (like printing) from one VLAN to another. If you can let me know which HiveManager platform you are using, I can give you more specific instructions.

 

This guide will walk you through how to determine which HiveManager you are using, for reference: https://thehivecommunity.aerohive.com/s/article/Which-HiveManager-Platform-am-I-using

We are using Software Version: 8.2r2c Build Time: 2019-01-18 22:57:44

Thank you for letting me know, this guide reviews how to configure Bonjour in HiveManager Classic: https://thehivecommunity.aerohive.com/s/article/Bonjour-Gateway-Set-Up

I have done what the document says but my wireless device is not able to see the printer. due to some unknown reasons, I couldn't attach the screenshot at the moment. Once I click the icon to attach the files, the screen goes freezing.

Could you tell me your VHM ID (Help> About HiveManager) so I can take a look at the configuration? If you'd rather share this with me directly my email is communityhelp@aerohive.com.

Thanks. It will be very easy for us. Will send email to you shortly.

Hi guys, please tell me can I do all this on my Samsung, which runs on Android? Or does it work only with an Apple iPad? The fact is that I recently bought a tablet and among the best tablets for taking handwritten notes I chose Samsung. Because the main thing that I needed was a stylus and the ability to write notes. I also plan to use the tablet to print various documents and sheets. And I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a tablet, so I didn't buy an Apple iPad, Samsung was much cheaper and met all my requirements. Anyway, thank you for your comments, I will try to use your advice.

You should be able to use your Samsung to move data over the Bonjour gateway to a different VLAN. Certain Bonjour services might be Apple only (such as airplay), but printing should work fine for any OS device.

Just know that whatever AP is acting as the Bonjour Gateway (BG) the switch its connected to, would have to have ALL of the vlans configured on it, even if they are just tagged (with your primary vlan), otherwise it wont “see” those other vlans.  I ran into that issue, but also that there was something wrong with my DHCP server (and have to remove DHCP and manually rebuild it on another server).  So on the switch, you would need to put all the vlans on it, then find which switch port that goes back to your server room, leave that untagged, and then all the others (normally shown to the right of that port) woudl all be tagged, and that way, the AP would be able to communicate across all the vlans (remember to configure the BG in the interface of Hivemanager, and add the services needed.  Although just know we had to download a printer app for our Konica’s as Bonjour just wont work that way on an ipad, but at least an ipad can now “see” an Apple TV across vlans (for us).

They should have an app for printing from that tablet to a printer.  You might even be able to use the HP print app.  Either way, it will use IP for printing, so you will need the IP address of the printer.
