The data from the computer or mobile phone is sent to your printer by these roads, so the printer start printing process after they well received the data. If you use a computer to control the printer for printing data, you can choose USB, Lan(also name Ethenet or network)port, COM(also name RS232,serial)port, Bluetooth, WIFI; if you use an Android phone or Android tablet to control the printer to achieve printing, you can generally choose USB, Bluetooth, network port, WIFI; If you use IOS mobile phone or IOS tablet to control the printer to achieve printing, you can choose network port, Bluetooth, WIFI.
