Printing from guest network not working for pc/mac

Printing from guest network is working from iPhone / ipad etc but not working for pc or mac.And I don't have a clue why..

My main network is on 10.0.1.x My guest network on 192.168.31.x

I have the following rule in my firewall config. So my guest client can print. But somehow only iPhones en iPads can. (not tested Android, don't have an Android device)

config rule
	option src 'guest'
	option name 'guest printing'
	list dest_ip ''
	option target 'ACCEPT'
	option dest 'lan'
	list proto 'all'

My printer is on 'lan'

Is the problem that you can't "discover" the printer, or is it that you have manually configured the printer, but when you send a print job it doesn't output anything?


Hi @dlakelan the pc or mac can't discover the printer. If I try to manual configure the printer it's not found.

Don't try to search the printer, instead add it by IP.
If you need to specify the protocol/port, check open ports with Nmap.
