    Web Printing "TCP/IP Direct from Server"

    Devin Howe

      Hi, I'm looking for more information about the "TCP/IP Direct from Server" web printing option that's described in the following video (https://youtu.be/XVYATTaYJJw?t=9m) at the 9:00 mark. We've recently purchased several Zebra ZT510 industrial printers and did a successful test with printing labels through the Browser Print app (using the great demo code that comes with the Browser Print app); however, we are interested in providing a more centralized solution that runs on the web server so that ...

      • Users can print labels from our intranet software using their web browser
      • Users can have a default printer but can also easily change to another printer
      • The solution doesn't have to be installed on each workstation (e.g., it's not required to be installed on each workstation like Browser Print)


      Other Info

      • The application is running on a Windows Server, but is written in Java Struts and runs on Tomcat
      • All of the workstations, servers, and printers are on the same network, so Cloud Connect should not be needed
      • We have generated the ZPL format needed for our labels using NiceLabel


      The solution as described in the video at the 9:00 mark sounds like what we're looking for. Are there any code examples showing the following?

      1. Embed the Link-OS SDK in a Java web application
      2. Allow the user to select which network printer they want to use
      3. Send the ZPL code from the webserver to the selected printer?


      Thanks so much!
