Understanding Communication Across VLANs w/ Orbi Pro

Understanding Communication Across VLANs w/ Orbi Pro

Hi!  I'm trying to understand how communication works across VLANs with the Orbi WiFI 6.  If I have a printer on SSID 2 (Employee network), can an iPhone on SSID 1 (default) access it?  Can that same iPhone connect to a printer if the printer is on SSID 3 (IoT)?  

 

I haven't seen a page in the documentation that lists a comparison of what you can / can't do between the VLANs built in.

The point is that you could print if the system does support a printer configuration using an iP address.

 

Trouble is that common discovery mechanisms like Bonjour or UPnP SSDP (and broadcast based stuff like proprietary or SMB protocol printing) don't go beyond of the same network (IP subnet, VLAN, ...).
