    Interestingly, apparently the Guest account only has to be active when the AirPrint service is started.  After the service starts, I can disable the Guest account and continue printing.  No substitute for having real userid / password authentication in place (like iOS 4 did) but better than leaving Guest active all the time.

    So if the Guest account must be active while service starts, maybe we can have a script which will enable guest account, start the service and disable the account.


    Any ideas?

    The setup worked very well as I posted above in the end of January. UnfortunatleyI had to change DSL-modem and router a couple of days ago. From a Zyxcel-modem and Netgear WNDR3700 to a Thomson TG789vn (router-modem combo).


    Now the printing only works if I turn of the firewall in the Win7-computer where I run the Airprint service. To my knowlege I didn't change anything in the firewall.  Anybody out there who can give me some advice how to set up the firewall (f-secure 2011) in a proper way? Or any other tip.


    If I restart the bonjour and airprint services the printing works for some minutes. I have also tried to install FingerPrint and it has the same behavior.

    Everyone having problems with setting this up with command prompt needs to use


    sc start AirPrint


    NOT sc.exe start AirPrint!

    It is exactly the same. Windows command prompt do not distinguish a command whether it has extension or not, like others systems operatives.

    Yes, now we just have to PAY for a service that was once free. Apple, you end time is near.

    Briddles, the firewall exception worked for me. Thanks!

    I am not sure this is the solution. It does work for me. It may help others as well.


    I was taken by surprise too that the new IOS did not support printing on my printers any more. The father of my wife bought a HPprinter with WiFi capabilities. He did not realize this printer was not an Airprint printer. So he created a challenge for me: How do I print on a printer without a PC running.


    I found the tool HP ePrint in the AApple Store. After installing this on his and my Ipad I was able to print email and other documents on the printer.


    Coming home I found that I was able to print on my printers as well. I had not tried for a while and there had been an update from IOS already. So I do not know if this solution was created by using a new version of IOS or it has been created by the app from HP.


    Please let me know when someone tries this and resolves the issue as well.
