I have fortigate connected to Fortiswitch, and have 3 Fortinet AP's connected
and created new VLAN 5 and assign the VLAN on the ports
All the computers are working fine, internet is working fine
the issue is i have printer connected to the same vlan but i cant see the printer from the computers although they are all in the same VLAN
when i connect the computer to the Wi-Fi and i have role in the firewall to allow the wi-fi to see the vlan 5 i can see and ping the printer.
i checked everything and the printer and computers are getting the same subnet
Sounds like a misconfiguration on the printer itself - check the network mask first.
If your PCs are using (the FGT) DHCP, configure DHCP for the printer as well, for testing.
"when i connect the computer to the Wi-Fi and i have role in the firewall to allow the wi-fi to see the vlan 5 i can see and ping the printer." What do you mean by role?

Today i investigated more and found wired issue
the computers connected to the same forti-Switch with the printer cant see the printer or ping
The computers connect to the otehr fortiswitches can see the printer and can ping
When i change the printer cable to other switch the computers on that switch cant see the printer
I have 4 different printers and same issue with all of them
We have fortigate 60F connected to 3 S224E switches
Same VLAN, Same switch cant see the printer !!!!!!
When i connect the printer cable to my laptop i can see and ping the other computers
Any Idea ?
I mean from the Wi-Fi i can see the printer
from any other switch i can see the printer
from the same switch i cant see the printer although they are all in the same VLAN
