How to print ZQ511 from TC15 React Native app

Hello,
Is it possible to use ZQ511 printer with React Native? 

https://developer.zebra.com/blog/develop-react-native-printing-app-android-ios-link-os-sdk 

I did all the steps in this link but the app cannot find the printer.

Does anyone have experience with this or can help? What should I do?

Thanks.
