How to Set Up Your Cloud Printer


First, connect your cloud printer to the internet via ethernet connection. You should find the ethernet port on the back of the printer.

Find the IP address of your printer

If using the mC-Print 2 or 3, you can power the printer off. While the printer is off, press and hold the feed button. While holding the feed button, turn your printer back on. Continue to hold the feed button until it starts printing. The very last bit that prints out will show your IP address. You can also look at your network map to obtain your devices IP address.

Go to your IP address

In a browser under the same network, type your IP address into your browser. You can then login. If you haven't changed your username or password, the default should be:

Username: root

Password: public
