HTTPS POST - Which Printer?

I'm using LP 2824 Plus printer. It is working fine with my Ruby on Rails application. I can print Label via "http://ip_address:port_number".

 

A LP 2824 Plus does't support "HTTPS" protocol as well as discontinued from Zebra.

 

Is there a way to do post using https on LP 2824 Plus? If no which printer support "https" protocol? does "ZD" series support?

 

I tried to read spec for different different printers but those are very limited to share network details like protocols, port, etc...

 

Please guide me which printer(s) support https or how can I manage thru LP 2824 Plus?

 

Regards,

Amit

Hi Amit,Unfortunately, Zebra

Hi Amit,

Unfortunately, Zebra printers do not support POSTing thru HTTPS  at this time.

Can you explain why you require communicating with the printer through HTTPS?

It is possible to communicate

It is possible to communicate with the ZD410 and other Link OS printers over HTTPS.

But it requires a secure websocket connection between the printer and the server.

The following Zebra Knowledgebase article contains a PDF that explains more:

It is possible to set up any

It is possible to set up any Link-OS printer (the ZD410 is Link-OS, LP2824+ is not) to communicate over HTTPS via websockets.  It is not possible to simply POST to HTTPS printer URL on any of our printers.  You can POST to HTTP only.  The websockets communication is based on the idea that the printer acts as a webclient and opens a bi-directional communication channel via HTTPS to a websocket server.  It does not go through the browser directly like the article talks about.    The article Greg posted was describing several ways to create a websocket server to talk to our printers.  We also provide a Java based websocket endpoint server that can be used with our SDK if that is desired. The section in the post that talks about this technology is called Cloud Connect. 

I hope this clarifies things,

Robin
