Is there a way to print from ios and android phones to CAnon IR-5353? An app? settings on the network?

We have an SBS 2011 Standard domain. There's a Canon IR-5353 printer on the network.  

Would anyone have any recommendations on ways to print to it from ios and android phones?  

Both when the phone is on the company wifi and on the LAN and also when out of the office on another wifi or cellular data?

If your Canon Printer has Air Print, you should be able to print

I print from my iPhone to an HP Printer with Air Print.

Thanks for TIR 5353 is a big commercial copier scanner machine. They don’t put airprint on those.

As  a sidenote how would you print to even a printer that has air print but you’re not on that lan?

I think I’ve seen but never played with HP having Internet print? You will email to a certain email address and it prints to your printer?

But again this is a big commercial printer that doesn’t have any of those things

Those large printers do not have air print so I do not know any way you can solve this with the given printer.

You can put an HP with air print on your network and print to that

Flow data analysis from SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA), along with Network Performance Monitor (NPM), can give you deeper visibility into your network’s traffic.

There may be ways to achieve what you want .. with AirPrint anyway

If the Canon IR-5353 is shared on the network you may be able to use a PC on your network as an intermediary (a print server) by installing AirPrint software .. the PC needs to have WiFi and be on the same LAN as the iOS Devices

If you've an Apple PC on your network you can install Printopia which turns the mac into an AirPrint server

If you've only Windows then
- You install the BONJOUR Print Services for Windows (You can install iTunes or just the Bonjour services alone)  
- AirPrint Activator IOS5 v2.6 (or some alternative AirPrint Servers for Windows see links below)
- Go into your Devices and Printers in Windows and share the printers you want available
- Enable the Windows Guest account (or you can use an Administrator account)

Canon offers a Mobile Printing App. However, you will need to use the Document Conversion Service (Canon cites this requirement). Within the documentation, look at the brochure, which lists models supported. I cannot seem to find anything on an iR 5353 existing anywhere, so not shocked that model isn't listed. (Recommend that you verify the model)

Here is a link discussing the Android app:

This can potentially work for 2 of the 3 cases (not the cellular data scenario). It would be easiest if the corporate wireless and wired networks are the same subnet (this assumes the printer is on it also).

I recommend against allowing remote printing to a printer. Devices should be connected to a VPN first. And there are plenty of VPN clients available for mobile devices.
