Printing remotely using 3G/4G instead of WiFi

If you want to print remotely to your office or home printers, you can use the "Print via Mobile Data" option using WePrint.

Quick Start Guide
  1. Download and install the free WePrint on your Mac or PC from here: http://esz.us/wp
  2. We strongly recommend you set up a new email account in the WePrint settings. WePrint creates printer emails that sit in the inbox. If you use an existing account it may get cluttered with these emails.
    Create a new email account.
  3. Add the new email username and password to the "Print via Mobile Data" tab in the Settings of WePrint. Choose your email account type in the menu.
  4. On your iPad/iPhone, tap on the Print button inside AltaMail
  5. Tap on "Choose" and then tap on the green "Printing over Mobile Data" button
  6. Enter your new email address and password. Choose your email account type in the menu and then tap on "Connect". You should now see your list of WePrinters in the choose printer screen.



Generally, when you are in your local WiFi network AltaMail will automatically find your WePrint server in your network and allow you to print straight away. If you are not in the same network as
the WePrint server, or you want to print via 3G/4G you can use the "Print via Proxy" option in the WePrint settings.


Do not confuse the "Print via Mobile Data" function with printing from an email account, we are simply using this email account as a transport method. If AltaMail supports email, you can set up
your email accounts to print in "Email" section of the app on your iPhone/iPad

If you have an office network with a firewall that blocks email server access, you could use iDisk or another WebDAV server. During step 5. select the type drop down in the WePrint
settings to select iDisk or WebDAV.

When printing, make sure the "Server" field on the Print screen displays the server name starting with "Proxy:". WePrint doesn't need to be running to print via proxy,
and it is generally not restricted by firewalls. WePrint can be started later to collect the printed documents, so is great when traveling.
WePrint does need to be running at some stage to collect the print jobs and print them.

If you have any issues with the set up then please see our Print via Mobile Data troubleshooting section (View)
