- Some ISPs will answer for all ".local" addresses. This includes iPrinter. To get around this (it's a common problem with many ISPs and lots of products), Google provides a free DNS service. Instructions on using it are here.
- Re-Installing iPrinter. Sometimes things just get hosed up. Yeah, it's probably my fault, but there's always about a week's wait to get updates on the app store. In the meantime, you can try re-installing iPrinter.
- First, back up any printouts you want to save; instructions are here under "How to copy files from an iPad app to your computer."
- Then, delete the app from the iPad (either by unchecking it in iTunes and doing a sync, or press/hold the icon until it wiggles and click the "x".)
- Then re-sync, making sure iPrinter is checked in the iPad's app list in iTunes.
- Then copy your printouts back (instructions here again under "How to copy files from your computer to your iPad app")
- The "Bonjour for Windows" application sometimes loses the connection with the printer while you are trying to install a printer on a PC. This happens with all printers. A workaround is to hit the next buttons as quickly as possible when adding the printer.
- The "Bonjour for Windows" printer driver sometimes will use the DNS address if it responds quicker than the MDNS address. This is a bug in the "Bonjour for Windows" printer driver.We intend to add PC zeroconf and IPP support, but there's no firm date for that.
- Most VPN software masks all Bonjour printers. If your computer is using a VPN, you may not be able to print to the iPad.
