iPrint Printer IP

My iPrint Printer is named: PrinterName on ipp://192.168.10.10. I am
thinking of creating a CNAME as iprtsvr.domain.com point to 192.168.10.10.

Since I then change the Print Manager to load using the iprtsvr. Will
people that has the printername with IP address still be able to print
without having to reinstall the printer?

I guess using the CNAME will allow me to move the Print Manager to a
different server in the future without having to touch all workstations, right?

Thanks
Ronny

I'm pretty sure that the iPrint client will detect the new IPP URLs and
auto-reinstall the printers with the new URL.

Exactly.

Hope that helps.
