Wubiq is a web / client combination that allows users to share its printing services (printers). It consist of a web application companion (wubiq-server) and a client print manager (wubiq-client).
On the client side the client print manager identifies itself to the server exposing its available print services. The server on its parts registers those print services as its own. Printing requests can then be directed to the server along with the print service name that will receive the document. The clients polls the server for its pending print jobs, if any, takes care of them and notifies the server of its success.

Wubiq has a manager from where you can check the status of connected clients and their services. Also provides a link for installing or downloading wubiq-client to be run on local computers or mobile devices. To bring up the manager on any client open a browser and just type: http://host:port/wubiq-server.
There are two ways to get the client to work on the remote computer. 1. Connecting to the wubiq-manager using http://host:port/wubiq-server.
Or by downloading a client program and running it from the command line. 1. From the previous downnload extract wubiq-client.jar. 2. You can make a batch or script to run the client with the following:
java -jar wubiq-client.jar --host http://host --port 8080. For example: - java -jar wubiq-client.jar --host http://localhost --port 8080 See the wubiq-client help by running java -jar wubiq-client.jar -?
**Note: replace host with the host address, port with the port (by default:8080).
Wubiq can now be installed on android powered devices. It will enable bluetooth printing through wubiq's interface. To install it on Android you have two options: 1. Connecting to the wubiq-manager using http://host:port/wubiq-server, and download the android app (wubiq-android.apk)
Or by extracting the android application wubiq-android.apk from a previously downloaded wubiq.zip.
Follow the installation steps and then configure the server address and the printers to be managed by wubiq.
