Printing via an intermediate PC (LAN)

This printing scenario may be used in case your printer does not have built-in wireless capabilities, if PrinterShare driver packs do not have a driver for your printer or if, for some reason, PrinterShare cannot connect to your printer directly. Please note that for printing to take place, your Android device and your computer have to be connected to the same wireless network. Your printer does not have to be necessarily physically connected to your computer (via USB or a parallel port) and can also be connected wirelessly, but it should already be configured to work with your computer.

  1. The first step would be to download PrinterShare console. Installers are available on our web page for free. Bonjour print services for windows is a part of the package that allows communication between your Android device and your computer, and has to be installed; if you already have a more recent version of Bonjour installed, you may skip its installation.
  2. Once the software is installed on your computer, run it, but make sure that your printer (or printers) is switched on. Your printer (or printers) will be displayed in Local printers window.
  3. Select the needed printer by left-clicking it and then -- once it is highlighted -- press button right underneath Local printers window with a list of printers. That will allow PrinterShare on your Android device to ‘see’ your printer.
  4. Next, make sure Nearby service is on (bottom left corner of the screen).
  5. Now, take your android device and check that Wi-Fi is active on your Android device by going to Settings > Wireless & Networks (Wi-Fi box should be checked) and that you are connected to the same wireless network as your computer (Settings > Wireless & Networks>Wi-Fi settings)
  6. With that taken care of, take your Android device and open PrinterShare by tapping on its icon.
  7. If that is the first time you run PrinterShare, you will see a splash screen with two buttons: Read More (which will provide you with general information on PrinterShare’s functionality) and Continue. Tap Continue once you are ready to proceed.
  8. You will see the main PrinterShare screen with icons that allow you to access various items that can be printed. Below the grid of icons you will see an icon of a printer with Not Selected displayed beside it. To select your shared printer, press the menu button on your device. The way your menu button looks and its location depend on the model of your Android device. Menu button can be a physical button that has to be depressed, a touch-sensitive button or it could be displayed on your device’s screen.
  9. Examples of how a menu button may look:

  10. Tap Nearby Printers Wi-Fi button and wait for the app to detect your printer.
  11. When your printer is detected, tap it and you are ready to print.
  12. Once you select an item you would like to print from the main menu of PrinterShare app, you will be taken to Print Preview screen where you will be able to adjust printing option (paper type, quality of printing, etc.) by tapping Options button which is located beside Print button that will, in its turn, actually send an item for printing.

    If the item you have sent for printing does not print shortly after you tapped Print, you will need to check whether print job is not waiting for your command to print in PrinterShare console on your computer. You can see a list of pending print jobs in Incoming window which you can access by clicking button located below Local Printers section of the main screen.

    Select the arrived print job by left-clicking it and then click Print button. You can automate printing by left-clicking Printer > Automation and setting Nearby Client to Print automatically in desktop PrinterShare console.
