Mobility Print FAQs

I was told to download Mobility Print. Am I in the right place?

Yes and no. If you're an IT admin, then yes: the download on this page has everything you need to set up the Mobility Print server. If you're looking to print as an employee or student, you'll need to get the Mobility Print client from your IT team (in most cases), so get in touch with them.

Where do I install Mobility Print?

After downloading the installer above, install the application onto:

  • an existing print server
  • a new system (even a desktop system) that's permanently left on
  • a virtual machine with its own IP address so it isn't behind a NAT (Network Address Translation).

Follow the Mobility Print Setup guide for more information.

What happens to my data?

Keeping your data secure is of utmost importance to us – and that goes for our paid and free products alike. We don't track or store individual print job information; and if you provide your email address, we transmit and store it fully encrypted.

We do, however, track some system-level information to assist our development, like server operating system and print volumes from different client types.

How do I get full control, tracking, and visibility over my BYOD printing?

These features are available with PaperCut print management. Contact our friendly customer care team at sales@papercut.com, and they'll recommend the best PaperCut product for your needs.

How do I migrate from Google Cloud Print before support ends on 31 December 2020?

For organizations currently not using PaperCut NG/MF, simply download Mobility Print from this page and install it on the same computer used to normally run the Google Cloud Print connector, i.e. a computer that has printers installed and remains on.

Once installed, share the setup link (found at the bottom of the Mobility Print Admin page) with your users. You can continue to use Google Cloud Print in parallel until you're happy all of your users have migrated to Mobility Print.

For organizations using PaperCut NG/MF, simply install Mobility Print on your existing print server that’s being monitored by PaperCut. Share the setup link with your users and switch off Google Cloud Print once you're happy all of your users have migrated over.

How exactly does Cloud Print send print jobs over the internet?

In a nutshell, Cloud Print enables the client to always find the fastest route for a print job to the Mobility Print server.

If a job can’t be sent over the local network, then PaperCut’s cloud service negotiates a handshake between the client and server, and sets up a secure encrypted peer-to-peer connection using WebRTC. In fact, all communication is sent via this encrypted peer-to-peer connection.

Moreover, the Mobility Print server doesn’t have to be exposed to the internet. As long as an outbound internet connection is available, PaperCut’s cloud service will make sure clients can communicate securely.

Read the Cloud Print setup guide for more information.

How much does Cloud Print cost?

Nothing at all.

Whether you’re using Mobility Print for free on its own, or with PaperCut NG/MF, you don’t have to pay to use the Cloud Print feature in Mobility Print.
