When you connect to a printer on MacOS or Windows, the system stores the printer so you can connect to it later. Does anyone know which criteria is referenced to validate it is the same printer when you connect to it again?
What if a preset printer went offline and another one took its place with the same IP, MAC address, and hostname? Would it recognize it as a different printer?
I’m guessing that there has to be some extra measure of security, but have failed to find any information on the internet.
