Printing to a Phaser 6000 from Android

Hi all,

I've a Phaser 6000 connected to my Fritz.box 7590 router USB port; the printer is correctly visible from, and used by, all PCs accessing my home network.

I would like to be able to print occasionally from my Android devices connected via wireless to my home network. According to fritz.box documentation, to access the USB connected printer from Android it should be enough to: 

  1. Install an app on the smartphone or tablet that can address printers using IP RAW, for example PrintBot or PrintHand Mobile Print.
  2. In the app, configure Raw TCP as the port type and 9100 as the port; enter fritz.box as the host name or IP address.

I tried both the PrintBot and PrintHand Mobile Print suggested apps, and although I can configure the Raw TCP as required, it seems those apps do not have a working driver for the Phaser 6000; I tried to use the Phaser 6510 driver both have in their driver list, but my printer just lights up the "!" led for a while and prints nothing.

I tried a dozen other remote/shared/wifi-print Android apps, including Mopria and Xerox Mobile Print, but none seems able to handle the Phaser 6000 correctly, and actually won't even allow me to setup the Raw TCP configuration.

Could anyone give me a hint to reach my goal?

Thanks in advance!
