wireless printing to the Enterprise M577

HP Recommended

Hello,

I would like to know what software I would use to print from my Windows PC to the M577. In our environment we have a guest wireless network with open access and I would like our students to be able to print from thier PC's to the M577. I also will need to secure and restrict so only the students can print and not other patron's. Typicaaly we might have 10 students, however they would not need to connect at the same time.

Thank you.

Hi,

A Guest network offered by a router is a completely different network, seperated from teh main network, therefore you cannot print from both a Standard network and a Guest Network, it is virtually a different network and equals to a different router, the printer cannot be visible for both in any way...

 

Additionally a guest network meant to allow internet connectivity only, not local netowrking which means the printer won't be visible even by connecting it to the same guest network.

 

Assuming you may have the Flow M577z model you may enable Wireless Direct to allow a direct connection to the printer for this purpose, that will not affect the active network connection with your network devices:

For any other M577 model you may purchase and use the HP Jetdirect 3000w NFC/Wireless Direct Accessory

A wireless direct connection allow connecting to the printer's network to print, that is the only way I can think of to allow both standard users pritneirn and a seperate guest printing without allowing access to your network, a wireless direct connection is password protected so only users with the password may connect to the printer and print.

 

Hope that may help,

Shlomi
