    Air Print for iOS5

    So we now have a working solution for air print ...again.

    Stop Airprint service (if installed)

    sc.exe delete Airprint

    At the command line type the following 2 commands:

    sc.exe create AirPrint binPath= "C:\Program Files\AirPrint\airprint.exe -R _ipp._tcp,_universal -s" depend= "Bonjour Service" start= auto

    sc.exe start Airprint
    I can now see my shared printers, but, they all have locks on them.

    I did have a lock on the printer when viewed via my iOS5 device so I activated my Guest Accounts (see below). Then I stopped and restarted the AirPrint under Services (Control Panel/Administrative Tools?Services/Airprint) and Voila!

    To see how to activate Guest Accounts see Guest Account - Turn On or Off - Windows 7 Forums
    This is where I cant get this to work with Server 2003. Anyone think of which account you would enable for guest access in a domain environment to allow unauthenticated printing?

    Have you shared the printer?
    Try creating a new user "print" and authenticating using that ?

    Yes the printer is shared, lol
    Thats the thing, you cant authenticate in iOS5 like you could previously, hence why you need an account that uses no authentication (i.e guest)

    Network access: Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users I think is the setting.
    Then you just add everyone with rights to the queue.
    Computer Config->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Local Policies->Security Options
