    Question Print on a network printer

    Hey guys,

    I was curious if there is a way to print from my blackberry (bold) to a non bluetooth or wifi printer. Is there an application that I can use to print a document on my blackberry by patching it thru my laptop's bluetooth connection to access the network printers on our server somehow? If there is such a program that i can enter the server address where the printer is located that will recognize and display the printer for connection (Canon iR C3200), and i can easily connect to it as I would in windows, that would be ideal. I need a way to get my bluetooth software to see the network printers at the server and a Blackberry application to see and recognize the LAN connected devices on the server. Thanks,

    Nick

    From what I understand:

    To connect directly from your Bold to a printer via WiFi would require you to install a driver made by the manufacturer designed for your specific type of device. Chances of that happening? Next to nil.

    Best chances are to send a file via BT connection to a BT supported printer, email the document to your workstation and print it from there, or transfer the file via data cable/BT to your desktop and print from there.

    That is all I have found so far...

    I know BB + HP are working on some sort of universal print solution for HP printers... You'd have to look up the details though.

    Default Thinprint

    There is a program called THINPRINT that is supposed to work. I googled it a few days ago, seems quite complicated though. Does anybody use this? It just seems like it is alot to setup and since I don't find the need to print directly THAT often, i was wondering if it is worth setting up.

    Content Beamer is the product. Looks like it is supported only on BES...

    Blackberry has a technical discussion on bluetooth and other connections to their phones; this matter can get expensive
