What else should you know

  • The computer has to be on the same network as your Wi-Fi-equipped iPhone/iPad.
  • LexPrint cannot communicate over a secure Virtual Private Network (VPN). This secure network connection is typically configured by your work-place IT department. 
  • The LexPrint version for the iPad has an embedded browser so you can print web pages.
  • If your printer supports "Bonjour" then you will only need the Lexprint application, i.e., S800.
