    Finally, a download link that works. Thanks!

    Hmm, doesn't appear to be a way to configure it on the PC. What, does it just share any/all printers on the PC? No config?

    If the printer is a network printer and you know the IP address you can try adding it manually to the Motoprint app. I got it to work with my Epson Artisan but it doesn't seem to work with Print Servers.

    To add a printer by IP (note must be on wifi):
    1) Open Motoprint
    2) Menu -> Manage Printers
    3) Menu -> Add Printer
    4) Enter Printer IP address and a name for it.
    After that everything should automatically be setup.

    I only post these steps because motoprint couldn't seem to find it by scanning the network.
