AirPrint settings for iOS and macOS devices

Use these settings to configure iOS or macOS devices to automatically connect to AirPrint compatible printers on your network. You need the IP address and resource path of your printers to proceed.

Find AirPrint printer information

Use this procedure to add AirPrint information to the AirPrint payload so that iOS device users can print to known AirPrint printers.

  1. On a Mac that’s connected to the same local network (subnet) as the AirPrint printers, open Terminal (from /Applications/Utilities)
  2. In the Terminal, type ippfind, then press enter.
  3. Make a note of any printer information the command returns, for example: ipp://myprinter.local.:631/ipp/port1. The first part of the information is the name of your printer and the last part is the resource path.
  4. In the Terminal, type ping myprinter.local, then press enter.
  5. Make a note of the IP address information returned by the command, for example, PING myprinter.local (10.50.25.21).
  6. Finally, use the IP address and resource path in the AirPrint payload settings. An example IP address might be 10.50.25.21, and an example resource path might be /ipp/port1.

Configure an AirPrint profile

  1. From Intune in the Azure Portal, navigate to Device features in the device configuration area.
  2. On the Device features pane, choose AirPrint.
  3. On the AirPrint pane, to add an AirPrint destination, enter its IP address and resource path, and then click Add.
  4. Continue to add as many destinations as you need. When you are finished, choose OK.

You can also import a list of printers from a comma-separated values (.csv) file or export the list.
