Printer (Brother/Epson) support for IoT VLAN

I have succeeded in getting a Brother HL-2135W laser printer working across VLANs.  I assume this solution will work for most if not all Brother network printers.  Subsequently, I've found that the same protocols are used by an Epson WF-3640 inkjet printer and the solution also works for that printer. I quickly worked around Windows printer discovery by entering the static IP address in to the printer Port configuration. But I had struggled to get the Brother Print Services (Android) plugin working.  The solution required some firewall rules and a utility to send broadcasts between VLANs.
