Zebra Printer SDK 2.15 .NET compatibility

Hi,

I have to develop a .NET application (server side service) able to generate a label, that connects to the printer and triggers label printing. As a first thought, I considered a Zebra printer would be suitable in this case and found that Zebra Printer SDK 2.15 for .NET is available for connectivity.

But I have some questions regarding on how to connect to a Zebra printer from a .NET application, mainly from the point of view of compatibility with the Windows OS version and also with model of the printer.

1) On the developer portal it is stated this is compatible with Windows 7,  8 and 10. Is it also suitable to establish communication directly from an Windows Server 2016 to a printer set on the same network?

2) As for now I did not decided on the printer model type. Are there any restrictions in compatibility of the this SDK with the Zebra printer models? Let say if I have an industrial model available such as Zebra 110Xi4 600 DPI.

In addition, is a payable subscription required in case of using the Zebra Printing SDK in an intranet client application? (communication via TCP is intended).

I would appreciate if receiving some answers to any of these questions.

Thanks a lot!

There is Link-OS Multiplatform SDK​​. You can use it for free because has no any subscription fees.

Also, there is documentation on it: Link-OS SDK - Zebra Technologies Techdocs

Hello SuzanaI unable to find

Hello Suzana

I unable to find explicit mention of Windows Server among supported OS types but IMHO there is a good chance it will work ok with network-featured Zebra printers from Windows Server on the same network.

There are some compatibility issues possible with legacy printers that have incomplete support in LinkOS SDK. Some SDK features are unavailable for them. BTW, seems your Zebra 110Xi4 is legacy printer model. However it has a replacement model ZT610 which is LinkOS based.

To decide if some printer model has complete support in LinkOS SDK you can check for LinkOS logo in a printer model description.printers-photography-website-link-os-75x75.jpg
