Guest WiFi - Printer - Auto Discoverable

I have successfully allowed access to a LAN printer from the guest SSID. No problem. But what I haven't been able to do is allow that printer to be automatically discoverable like it is when a computer on the LAN is trying to add it. I can add the printer by IP, but I need guest users to be able to AirPrint to it, add it to a Windows 10 or MacOS machine without downloading a driver. I suspect this has to be with mDNS, but am not entirely sure at the moment. Any takers?

Hello @jreadmin,

 

Try to enable mDNS, also make sure the printer is added to the exception list for Multicast and Broadcast filtering.
