[Micronet] wireless printer with airbears?

Jennifer Teverbaugh
This is kind of a silly question, but is there a way to use a wireless
printer with Airbears?

Thanks!
Jennifer

How timely. A faculty person was asking the exact same question to me
today. Thanks for the reference back, Ian. I'll pass on the consensus to
him though I'm sure I won't get a happy retort back.

Good points are made in this thread; Ian thanks for referring to it.

AirBears authentication controls access to the rest of the campus
network, including other parts of AirBears. If all you want to do is
access your printer via wireless from other wireless devices in the
same building as your printer, then all you may need to do is tell
your printer to associate to AirBears. I don't know how well this will
work, if at all, and make no guarantees that it will work in the
future.

The AirBears FAQ[1] states that the service is not suitable for
providing services, such as a printer. As stated in the above thread
and the FAQ, AirBears is not a replacement for the wired
network. AirBears does not have all of the features available on the
wired network for supporting things like printers. It is designed for
transient use.

So while some limited use of a wireless printer with AirBears may be
technically possible, it isn't supported. I advise against using the
above configuration under these conditions.

Erik
