Help printing from Android using printer on LAN

HI,

 

I have an Android Galaxy Note 5 and desperatly trying to print from it.

 

I have the Xerox Mobile Print Portal App and the Fuji Xerox Print Utility App.

 

I seem to be doing what is asked but I cannot see the printers on an IP of 192.168.0.22 etc.

 

I am connected to the correct Network but it will not see teh printer.  It is a Phaser 6250.

 

Thanks

Re: Help printing from Android using printer on LAN

The 6250 doesn't support Mobile print.

The last Windows driver was made 9 years ago (Discounting the GPD)

 

The Mobile Print Portal app requires Xerox Mobile Print, which is not free, it needs to be purchased and installed on a PC connected to the printer.

 

Since you use an Android product, you could put Chrome browser on a PC on the LAN, as long as it (Chrome) was using your account (Gmail account from the Note 5) you would be able to install this old printer as a Classic Printer.

You could then print using Google Cloud Print

But that requires the PC running Chrome to be on, and you have to be signed into it. Nobody else will be able to use it at all.

Hi!

Same situation with Xerox WorkCentre 5335?

I'm trying to print via an Android phone with Xerox Print Service plugin installed: my lan workcentre is recognized, but i can't print...

Re: Help printing from Android using printer on LAN

All the same rules apply, there is no way the 5335 is being seen by your Android device unless somebody has shared it in another way like Google Cloud Print as a Classic printer, or with an external device like a WPSA-100. It doesn't have MOPRIA/Airprint or Cloudprint ability, so something else is surely what is being seen.

 

If Google Cloudprint is in use as a Classic Printer, the issue is on the PC sharing it, because the printer has no idea where the job came from, only the PC that submitted it does via the Google Account that shared it.

Thanks for your reply!

This is the screenshot when i try to add a printer (starting e.g. from Adobe Acrobat) in my android phone using plugin "Xerox Print Service" :

Screenshot_20170209-201017.png

It seems to see my lan 5335 (with its correct static IP), but then i can't print with it ("Print error - Impossible to print the document").

The 5335 isn't shared via Google Cloud Print as a classic printer.

I've flashed the firmware found here http://forum.support.xerox.com/t5/Copying-Faxing-Scanning/Workcentre-5330-Email-Error-017-714/td-p/1...

Re: Help printing from Android using printer on LAN

No idea what is being discovered there, the printer does not have the ability to do MOPRIA, so it should not show up in there, it would have to be another device like the WPSA-100.

 

If someone just hacked something together to make it show up, then you would need to know what they did in order to find the job error.

Until it shows up on the printer and displays a fault, there is no troubleshooting to be done from the Xerox standpoint.

Mmmm...No one has hacked something there.

I've only flashed the last firmware found on this forum, to solve error 017-714, and i'm trying to use Xerox plugin (not Mopria one) from my phone.

So have i to not waste my time to find something in Centreware that allows to print from my android phone?

Re: Help printing from Android using printer on LAN

I supplied the firmware link in the other post, I guarantee it did not give your printer MOPRIA ability, and that is exactly what the Xerox Print Service Plugin does, it allows more useful options after MOPRIA discovery, which is the open source, Android centric version of AIRPRINT, which is closed source and Apple only.

 

Which is why the 53XX printers are not listed for it under compatibility.

How did you add the printer, I assume it wasn't discovered by the plugin since it doesn't state what it is connecting by, did you per chance  manually add it as a printer via IP address? If so, all it did was verify there is a printer there, because it isn't supported (Doesn't run MOPRIA) there is no associated driver or protocol to use it, and you get the fault about it being impossible (unsupported).

Re: Help printing from Android using printer on LAN

Hi, if I can please add to this thread instead of a new one - my question is more or less the same.

 

I bought the FUJI-XEROX DocuPrint M225 DW today.

 

It is listed as Mopria certified  http://app.mopria.org/desktopmodules/mopria_productlisting/Mopria_ViewProductDetails.aspx?ID=774

 

I have it on my local network via a network cable and can print, scan etc. (From both a PC connected by cable to my router and a laptop connecting with WIFI to my router)

 

I know what is the IP of the printer and can log in as administrator to the web/browser admin interface. (192.168.1.xxx) I can also access this admin interface from my Android phone - a Huawei P9 Lite. Mopria was preinstalled on the phone.

 

My problem - I cant add my printer to the Mopria service. Questions:

Should I simply use the IP number and no special port/url path?

Any special settings that I can confirm via the admin interface?

 

Any help would be much appreciated - Mopria cerification was the reason I bought this printer.

 

Thanks

Re: Help printing from Android using printer on LAN

OK - ignore the question. I had to disable and re-enable the preinstalled Moria servcie on the phone. Then all was good
