- Enable mobile print
Check this to allow printing from iOS/iPadOS phones and tablets to mobile print enabled Printix print queues. Only available if Enable mobile print is checked on the Settings page’s Mobile print tab. Printix Client broadcasts these print queues as AirPrint printers. To do the broadcast, Printix Client for Windows will automatically install Apple’s Bonjour Print Services for Windows (2.5 MB). No additional software is required for Printix Client for Mac (Bonjour is part of macOS). Print queues that have Enable mobile print checked will be broadcast as AirPrint printers on iOS/iPadOS phones and tablets as follows:
- A print queue will be broadcast on the printer’s network, if the network has Enable mobile print checked.
- A print queue, that has Via the cloud checked, will be broadcast on all networks that have Enable mobile print checked.
- A Printix Anywhere print queue will be broadcast on all networks that have Enable mobile print checked.
- Mobile printed anywhere documents can, unless the printer’s QR code or NFC tag is scanned, be released only to printers that has a print queue with Via the cloud checked.

Do NOT check Home office manually. Adding home office groups will check this for relevant networks. Only uncheck Home office if you want to treat the network as a Company network.

Test will report either OK or Connection failed. It may take minutes rather than seconds if the network has many gateways. If there is no computer online on the network it will report No computer is online on network.
