IOS printing via CUPS
Authored by: tobylane on Dec 26, '10 03:10:19PM

Does any of this allow for virtual printers (google results on it seem to be about early Leopard at the latest) like Printopia?

The linked post is aimed at linux, mac already has it all. It doesn't immediately seem transferable (as in using what we already have).

IOS printing via CUPS

@ tobylane
the lisanet hint should work with any printer that you are able to share. It works with a brother MFC-7820N and a Canon i9950 here.

the hint is very simple, im merely creates a additional file format which seems to be the trick that Apple uses to print from IOS devices. Nothing else. As it is not a software like Printopia it has no "additional" features.

So if you have a virtual printer set up on your Mac and you are able to share it it should work. I have no virtual printers set up so I can't test it.
