AirPrint Name and Security

Does anyone happen to know if:

 

1. Can I set a Host Name for a printer (specifically LaserJet Pro 400 color MFP M475dw) in AirPrint? I think there may be a Bonjour option under the wireless settings, but I haven't seen this documented by HP yet. (not in the docs I read, at least)

 

2. Is there a way to restrict printing via AirPrint? Again, maybe there's something under the wireless settings, but I haven't seen anything yet.

 

I'm researching a printer to use with an iPad in a corporate enviroment. I'm considering the above mentioned model, but need to make sure I can set a host name and ensure wireless secuirty. 

 

Thanks in advance!

I am certain you can do these things.  Here is the User Manual for this device and it shows you how to configure this device for use with a Mac.

The bonjure settings are usually part of the network configuration you can do using the EWS on the device.

I don't have that particular model availible to me so I can't tell you the maximum level of wireless security it supports.  WJA may also offer additional security controls that are not availible through the EWS.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: AirPrint Name and Security

Type in your printer ip address into a web browser to access the settings page.

 

Look for the [Netwroking] tab.

 

Choose [Network Identification] on the left side.

 

You'll see [Host Name] and [Bonjour Domain Name].  The Bonjour Domain Name should do the trick.
