We will use an example with 2 iPad devices and 2 printers, but the principles outlined work for any combination (e.g. 5 iPad devices on 3 printers).
In our examples, the iPad 1 needs to print on printer 1 and the iPad 2 (eg in another part of the building) needs to print on printer 2.
It is important to have iPad 1 and printer 1 on the same network and iPad 2 and printer 2 on the same network. Also, both printers need to be AirPrint compatible.
Steps to follow
- Please start by configuring printing from iPad 1 as if there was only one printer by following the default instructions for AirPrint printers.
- At this stage, if you add other iPad they will also print on printer 1. In order for iPad 2 to print on printer 2 instead, please follow these steps:
- On iPad 2, go to the iPad settings, then click on Proxyclick in the left menu
- Go to “Overwrite printer IP address defined in dashboard” and enter the IP address of printer 2
Done. Your iPad 2 now prints on printer 2. Please let us know in case you have any questions. Thank you!
