With the iphone we were able to configure good print function via CUPS/Avahi, is there
anything similar that can be done with an Android

by Android (3.2 Honeycomb). I would like to print to by
openSuSE server in the same manner I do from iOS. Anybody found a good solution?
I have found PrintBot, but that isn't a solution because it cannot be used legally
where confidentiality is required. (data is transferred
to a 3rd party server before printing). I need to find a direct print solution. What says
I use this
Its not free. The free version is a test version, and limited. There is a key you buy
separately to unlock
It will print on any printer it can "see" in your local network via wifi whether
that printer is shared
by cups, jet-direct, or Windows shares. It will print to local printers over bluetooth as
It will print via Google Cloud print as well from anywhere in the world, but that probably
your legal needs.
There are also some proprietary printing packages made by some of the printer
manufacturers, hp, kodak, etc.
These often route thru Google Cloud share OR some facility supported by the manufacturer,
so again may
not meet your needs unless they encrypt en-route, which I doubt.
Exceptions (to my doubt, above) include hp ePrint enterprise solutions.
They claim encryption end-to-end.
But for in-house printing the PrintShare app never leaves your network.
