Native Android printing

Cortado Server supports the Android print option, offering comprehensive support for Android devices. With Cortado Server 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 Cortado server and is forwarded from there to the print server. The file will be rendered there and then sent to the printer.

printing to a network printer via Android Print

So it’s possible to print from all apps that offer a print option to a network printer (left illus.). You only need to assign the network printers to the users (see sec­tion Printing to network printers). Then these printers will be made available to the users in the appropriate apps (right illus.).

Printing from the Word app (example)

If the Android users are using firmware older than Android 7.1, they only need to enable the print option in the settings of their Android device beforehand.
