Wi-Fi Direct - Canon Pro 100

Does the Canon Pro 100 support Wi-Fi Direct? The printer is not installed on the print server, and the user wants to print to it without connecting to it with a USB cable. The manual said the printer had to be on the same wi-fi network as the device printing to it, but printers aren't allowed to connect to the same wi-fi network as other devices in the enterprise. Therefore, if the printer doesn't support Wi-Fi Direct, the only way I see her printing wirelessly to it is connecting the printer to an ethernet cable permanently and adding the printer to her MacBook once the device is recognized on the network, thereby allowing her to print wirelessly with no connecting to the printer via a USB cable. Thoughts?

Greetings,

The Pro 100 does not support Wireless Direct.

 

USB

Ethernet

or

Connection to a wireless AP only.

 

Once the printer is connected to a network, devices connected to the same network (regardless of how they connect) can print to it.
