Supported printers

In general, Axis print servers support all networkable printers. All printers that use internal computing capacity for generating printouts (i.e. that do not rely on a host computer's processor) can be networked. This is how printers normally operate.

Printer types with limited support

  • Host-based printers
    Host-based printers, typically low-cost printers aimed for personal use, are using printing technologies (GDI, CAPT and PPA) that make them impossible to network - unless specially adopted drivers are used. Axis general purpose print servers do not support this type of printers.

  • Multi Functional Printers
    In most cases, Axis print servers support printing but not scanning in Multi Functional Printers (MFP:s).
