host name

I am trying to establish contact between by printer and my iphone

In order to establish the contact I apparently need a "Host Name"

I have no idea what a host name is nor do I have such a thing

What do I type into the area that requires a Host Name?

Re: host name

Hi PGreen,


I see that you're setting up your printer to work with your iPhone.  I have a couple of questions for you.


What printer do you have?


Are you trying to use Airprint or an App to print to your printer?


What is asking for your printer's host name?
