Yeah, if you'd be so kind to repost it all here and is of good quality I'll throw it in our guides section! :D

I've created a little guide for installing CUPS with AirPrint compatibility on my own blog. I can re-post it here if thats important. This guide reflects the latest FreeNAS changes (mDNSresponder instead of Avahi).

https://www.kaisblog.de/2014/08/27/airprint-jail-freenas/


A few more things to add a few years later:

  • I had to run pkg install avahi nano cups instead of what you had
  • I also had to run pkg install wget
  • And pkg install python

I did actually run into a slight problem. when I go to add a printer and it forces me into ssl, I cannot get it to work in Chrome, it only works in Firefox, any ideas?

Also, how do I tell a Jail to access USB printers?
