Set up Cloud Print on a Mac

After you’ve created an invite link, as described in Step 1: Configure Cloud Print in the Mobility Print server, send the link to your users.

Now your users have this link, all they have to do is click it and follow the steps below. We recommend you also follow these steps on your Mac to familiarize yourself with the user’s process.

  1. On your Mac, click the URL. The following setup page is displayed.

    If you don’t see the popup, click Connect and get my printers.

    Either way, you’ll see the following message:

    Confirm that you’re ok to open the Mobility Print client!
  5. Click Open.

    The setup page passes the necessary secret information to your Mobility Print client, which immediately establishes a secure peer-to-peer connection with the your Mobility Print server to fetch and install the printers.

Seriously, that’s it.

After you select the Mobility Print printer you want to print to, you’ll be asked to enter your printing username and password. Then your print job will be sent and that’s it!
