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. Create a new gmail account from this Gmail Link
  3. Add the gmail username and password to the "Print via Mobile Data" tab in the Settings of WePrint
  4. On your iPad/iPhone, tap on the Print button inside CalPrint
  5. Tap on "Choose" and then tap on the green "Printing over Mobile Data" button

  6. Enter your new gmail address 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 CalPrint 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.

We strongly recommend you set up a new Gmail 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.

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

Full Instructions
  1. Download and install the free WePrint on your Mac or PC from here: http://esz.us/wp
  2. Create a new gmail account from this Gmail Link
  3. Go to WePrint on your computer and click the "Settings" button, now click on the "Print via Mobile Data" tab
  4. Turn on the "Remote Printing via an Email/WebDAV server" option
  5. Enter the email address of the new Gmail account and hit test
  6. Your web browser should show the gmail login web page. This is extra gmail security and you need to login to continue.
  7. A green check mark should appear after the tes
  8. Open CalPrint on your iPad/iPhone, go ahead and print something like a web page/calendar
  9. When you see the "Print" screen, tap on the "Choose" if the choose printer has not already appeared
  10. Tap on the green "Printing over Mobile Data" button
  11. Enter your new gmail address and then tap on "Connect". You will also need to login to the gmail login web page again.
  12. You should now see your list of the green WePrint printers in the choose printer screen.
  13. Select a printer and then tap on Print



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

Problems printing remotely with Print via Mobile Data

Do you have "Proxy:" showing in the server field of the Print screen on the iPhone? If not, use the "Choose" button beside the Printer field to select or add a WePrint server.
  1. If you are having problems using "Print via Proxy" the first thing you should do is create a Gmail account purely for "Print via Mobile Data". This is to avoid other apps deleting emails from this account. It doesn't mean that you can't print emails from other email accounts.
  2. Quit WePrint, delete all WePrint subject emails in the gmail inbox and start WePrint again.
  3. Go to the the "Print via Mobile Data" option in the WePrint settings. Turn on "Remote printing via and Email/WebDAV server". Make sure the gmail address is entered and press the "Test" and then the "Save" button.
  4. Go to your gmail inbox and make sure there is a new WePrint email there. It should contain a single attachment. if not, check your settings in WePrint.
  5. Once that is set up go to the iPhone/iPad and when you get the Print screen, press the "Choose" button and then tap on the "Printing over Mobile Data" button
  6. Enter your new gmail address and then tap on "Connect". You will also need to login to the gmail login web page again.
  7. You should now see your list of the green WePrint printers in the choose printer screen.


There will be a slight delay as WePrint waits to check the gmail account. To print instantly, open the "Print via Mobile Data" tab in WePrint and click the "Check now" button.

Do not set up your Print via Mobile Data gmail account in the email accounts screen of CalPrint. It is only used for printing and so only needs to be added in the "Print via Mobile Data" screen.

My device says "Error connecting to the server". It can't find the WePrint server

If you have problems connecting to your printer, here are some options try.
Try rebooting your network router

Open CalPrint, tap on the print button and then tap on "Choose" in the print screen. Tap on "AirPrint" in the choose printer screen to see if your printer is found that way.

Otherwise, our free WePrint for Mac/PC can help track down any print quality and network connection problems.
WePrint is installed on your Mac or PC and shares your Printers so you can print from your iPad/iPhone.
Install WePrint on your Mac or PC from here: http://esz.us/wp

Make sure WePrint on your Mac/PC and also the iPhone/iPad are in the same network

Do you have 'WePrint' displayed in the 'Server' field in the 'Print' screen in CalPrint?
Tap 'Choose' in the 'Print' screen > 'Choose Printers' screen > tap to select the green 'WePrint' icon with your printer name and 'Available' underneath.

On rare occasions connection problems occur and are usually caused by your Firewall. Check the Windows help page to make sure your
firewall isn't blocking connections. Try turning off your firewall temporarily to test it.

In the app print screen, tap on the "Choose" button. In the next screen tap "+" and if it doesn't find it automatically, enter the WePrint server details.

Try also changing the WePrint port number in the WePrint Settings - Advanced tab. Set the custom port number to 8081 or 8082 etc. Make sure you change the port on your device too if you do this.

Check that your device is connected to your Wi-Fi router with a password if it needs one. Some routers allow guest access with no password, but that blocks access between devices in the same network.
If your router has password access, enter it in your iPhone/iPad settings.
Some routers have a feature in the router Admin screens called "AP Isolation". This will block access between devices. Check that "AP Isolation"/"Wireless Client Isolation" is off.

If find after trying all of these steps you are simply blocked for no reason, or you want to print via 3G/4G you can use the option.
