Hello Michael,

thanks for your clearification!

Maybe some examples or howtos are usefull on!

In my situation with mac os x 10.8 I have configure statically by hand :-(

Is there any possibility to relay bonjour/avahi information across sub-net boundaries?

Any Linux clients can either use BrowsePoll to the new servers (if the clients are still running CUPS 1.5 or earlier) or use statically-configured printers (lpadmin -p printer -E -v ipp://servername/printers/printername) to get equivalent functionality (all versions of CUPS).  If the clients are still running older versions of CUPS, BrowsePoll and BrowseRelay will still work when pointed at the new servers.
