ThinPrint Mobile Print supports the Android print option, offering comprehensive support for Android devices. With ThinPrint Mobile Print users can select images and files on their Android devices and print them on corporate network printers. If a user triggers a print job from any app, an HTTPS request, together with the file and printer name, goes over port 443 to the Mobile Print server and is forwarded from there to the print server. The file will be rendered there and then sent to the printer.
