Web Printing Issues

My company has many GX420t printers that have a USB connection. They are used by people across multiple states to print labels so they need to be able to print to their local printers.

 

We are creating a website that creates labels and prints them based on form data. I have looked into a lot of the possible solutions to online printing and I couldn't find a viable option yet. The one solution that could possibly work is using a printers IP address to print to a printer from a separate html page (as long as the webpage isn't open in chrome). This would be what I would like to use if not for the set up it requires.

 

It requires people who are less tech savvy to find out what IP address their, or their company wide, printer/PC has.

 

This may be something that they could be trained to do however I was wondering if anyone has found a way to automatically get the IP address of the zebra printers on a computer or if anyone has found a better way to print labels from a webpage with the GX420t printer.

 

Thanks for reading it through and if anyone has any pointers or tips they would be greatly appreciated!!

Andrew,

Zebra released few months ago a new Web browser printing solution that I think it covers your use case.

Please, review the following links about the Zebra Web browser printing solutions available right now.

Hello,Thank you for the

Hello,

Thank you for the response and the links you provided. I was under the impression that the browser print option only works with the following printers: ZD500, ZD410, LP2824+, ZT230, ZT420 (ZD500R,

ZT210, ZT220, ZD420, ZT410). Is this not the case? Can I use a GX420t?

Thank you for the quick response.

Hi Andrew,Zebra has not

Hi Andrew,

Zebra has not tested Browser Print with GX420T, and therefore is an unsupported product. In practice, you may find that the printer works because it has similar Zebra technology.

You can use it at your own discretion.

Thanks,

MC
