AirPrint device policy

You can add a device policy in XenMobile to add AirPrint printers to the AirPrint printer list on iOS devices. This policy makes it easier to support environments where the printers and the devices are on different subnets.

This policy applies to iOS 7.0 and later.


Be sure to have the IP address and resource path for each printer.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.
