Background

I'm trying to implement AirPrint through static DNS, like documented on http://dns-sd.org/ServerStaticSetup.html. The iPad gets the dns search domain "lan" through DHCP, and I verified that in Settings-WLAN. I think I created all necessary entries in the right places, the iPad however doesn't find my printer or if it happened to find it, it showed a lock after the printers name and didn't print. (iOS version is 6.0.1)

Has anyone here a clue, as to why iOS does not find the printer or if it finds it, why it shows it as locked?

This is my setup (simplified with example domain)

DNS entries

Redirect to browse domain

PTR b._dns-sd._udp.lan = bonjour.lan
PTR lb._dns-sd._udp.lan = bonjour.lan

Printer entries

PTR _ipp._tcp.bonjour.lan = TestPrinter._ipp._tcp.bonjour.lan
PTR _universal._sub._ipp._tcp.bonjour.lan = TestPrinter._ipp._tcp.bonjour.lan
SRV TestPrinter._ipp._tcp.bonjour.lan = 0 0 631 mfp.printer
TXT TestPrinter._ipp._tcp.bonjour.lan

This is strange, the code-fencing (4 leading spaces) isn't working... –  Jason Salaz Dec 22 '12 at 9:29
    
@JasonSalaz It's because there was a list preceding it. You have to either double indent to make the code part of the list, or get rid of the list. <code> tags would also work. –  robmathers Dec 22 '12 at 16:20
