Mobility Print system requirements

Server requirements


Operating System

  • Windows Server 2019 / 2016 / 2012 / 2012 R2 / Windows 10* / Windows 8*

    Note: Core, server, advanced server, enterprise edition, 64-bit edition, workstation, and professional versions are all supported.

    All Windows 10 and Windows Server Operating Systems run PaperCut Software products as either x86, x32 or x64 applications on Intel or AMD CPU architectures. PaperCut Software products cannot currently run as ARM32 and ARM64 UWP applications on ARM Processors.

  • Mac OS X 10.12+ (for example, Sierra, High Sierra, Mohave)

  • Most modern Linux operating systems including:

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (6.0+)
    • CentOS (6.0+)
    • SuSE Linux (11.0+)
    • Ubuntu (10.04+)
    • Debian (6.0+)
    • Others supporting GNU glibc 2.11 or higher.

Memory

  • 2 GB or higher recommended.

Hard Disk

  • At least 3 GB of free space is recommended.

Printer requirements

Mobility Print works with the vast majority of printers. The key requirement is that the printer has a print driver for the server host operating system (for example, a Windows Driver).

Mobility Print supports all printers that have drivers for modern Windows operating systems except label printers and plotters. This is because the drivers for label printers and plotters use non-standard page sizes. If you find any exceptions, or have problems, please let us know.

Client requirements


  • iOS 11.0+
  • macOS X 10.12+ (Sierra) 64-bit
  • Windows 7+
  • Android 4.4+
  • Chrome OS with Chrome version 69+

Mobility Print integrates with PaperCut NG/MF versions 17.0.3 or greater.

The Cloud Print feature integrates with PaperCut NG/MF versions 17.0.3 or greater.

Firewall rules

Which protocols and ports to set up depends on the printer discovery method you are going to use.
