    Just wanted to see if this is a problem with my home or is this a common io6 problem? My airprint printer stopped showing in the print menu. I'm using iOS6 beta 2. Thanks.

    Mine is working.

    Mine wasn't working at first and I found I forgot to save running config on Cisco switch. I power cycled my switch earlier today. The port was shutdown.

    Check your config at home. Maybe u did something else like I did. Also try power cycling printer.

    It works only after doing disable/enable the WiFi. I think it's a bug.

    Discovered my mine no longer works using Fingerprint on Windows.

    It doesn't find any printers. Tried it both at home and at work, neither works.

    Mine didn't work either unless I had my iPad 3 running 5.1.1 searching for the printer at the same time, then it would find it.

    I need to try this.

    AirPrint works perfect on 4th gen iPod touch and iPad 2, but I cannot get it to work on new iPad.

    There is nothing to fix, you need to update FingerPrint to v2 :)

    Airprint & IOS 6

    I spent some time this week to try and find out why Airprint is not working on my new IPAD with IOS 6. My old Ipad 1 is on the other hand working. My setup is that I have Bonjour installed on a W7 PC sharing my home printer HP Photosmart 6200. I took a packet trace on my W7 PC and discovered that it seesm that the Bonjour mdnsresponder.exe is not reacting on the requests sent out by my new ipad. When I do the same thing with my old Ipad mdnsresponder immediatley responds. When I compare the packet traces I can see that the multicast requests sent out by the new Ipad is different than my old Ipad. What differs is that the MDNS-requests in the new Ipad use _IPPS_ compared to the old one that use _IPP_. I am pretty sure that this has to do with IOS 6 since our Iphones with IOS 6 can't see the printer either.

    My setup does exactly the same thing. I have the latest FingerPrint software ( running on W7 x64 sharing an HP printer. From my 4S, printing works perfectly. From my iPad 2, it works but be patient. i.e. You click PRINT and then wait 30 seconds for the printing window to appear. From my iPad 3, it never prints and sniffing the wire, nothing shows up fromthe iPad client. It's like it just doesn't phone home...

    Are there any utilities to clear the AirPrint remembered information from an iPhone ? I'm wondering if the bug is because it is remembering some info from the older AirPrint printers ???

    Wifi off/on


    Mine also worked after turning the wifi of my iphone off and on again.

    I have a Canon Pixus MG6230 (Japan model) I think the US model is Pixma MG6220. I know the first firmware version did not support AirPrint but the firmware update solved that.

    Anyways it suddenly stopped working but turning my iphone (IOS 6.0) Wifi off then on again fixed it. I was lazy and just tried airplane mode on and off and this DID NOT work.

    In case anyone else still has problems, when I upgraded the AirPrint software to the latest version, all my problems went away. Now, I can print perfectly from all my iOS devices...
