The xPrintServer Diagnostics App

Additionally, users can test network speed, view a list of printers, monitor print jobs, view log files, and submit diagnostic reports either to Lantronix directly or via email to other users.
“We believe the inclusion of our diagnostics app in the iTunes App Store, along with the success of the iPhone 5, will only improve the awareness and adoption of the xPrintServer,” said Mark D. Tullio, vice president of worldwide marketing for Lantronix. “We look forward to continuing to work with Apple in both marketing and development efforts.”
