iOS printing across subnets and when requiring authentication
Here's the problem:
50 iPads on one vlan, all our printers on a different vlan and the way we have our print management configured we require authentication in order for everyones prints to be allocated to the correct cost centers.
At present i've tried a few little systems in order to get our printers to show up on the iOS devices but they still only seem to work if I'm on the same vlan. I've got documentation on how to configure bonjour to work across subnets but it seems like a right faff because i have to setup each printer one by one with TXT record in DNS so I'm just after a quicker and simpler solution if possible.
I've looked at something called xPrint Server which looks like it can do everything i want, but I'm after two things from you all: 1. How do you currently get around this issue? 2. Anyone used xPrint server before to comment on it and will it do what we want?

I did this by setting up routing across the lans and setting up a small avahi server with cups (on a raspberry pi of all things), however I've no idea how your print authentication will work.
