The xPrintServer from Lantronix enables users to print direct from their mobile devices without the hassle of sending files over to their computer first. The server eliminates the need to print through apps or using set software. These servers are very handy, especially when it comes to students. Students need not worry about sending notes from their tablets to their computer before printing. Instead, printing has been made easier. The two main servers are the xPrint Server Home Edition (for iOS devices) and the xPrint Server Cloud Edition (for android devices).Why we love these servers
