Why are HP printers identified as an AP?

I have an HP 7520 connecting to an R510 (Unleashed).  I notice it's being detected as a rogue AP.  Why does Ruckus see it as an AP versus just a client?  Is there a setting on the printer that is causing this?  Is there a way to white list it in Unleased so it is not seen as a malicious rogue AP?

Hi Michael,

It's because the HP printers have a built in AP for peer printing from phones etc without the need to install drivers etc. I'm not sure about white-listing as I tend to turn this feature off on the printers
