    get status printer ZTC ZD500R-203dpi ZPL java

    gennaro ca

      good morning, now i am connected in lan with rj45 ot printer zebra r500 and i have the ipaddress of the printer.


      i have installed the printer and i have the driver, the printer is connected and available but in the control panel, in the section printers, it is incative, why?


      i need the status of the printer so i could print something, i have tried some blocks. thank you in advance for your help.


      1)this block gives me all the printer names, but i don't need that

      PrintService[] services = PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(null, null);

      for (int i = 0; i < services.length; i++) {




      2)with this block i can have more info about a fixed printer, but is not what i need

      color-supported: not-supported

      printer-is-accepting-jobs: accepting-jobs

      printer-name: "PRINTER NAME"

      queued-job-count: 0



      for (int i = 0; i < services.length; i++) {

          if(services[i].getName().equals("PRINTER NAME")) {

          att = services[i].getAttributes();

                     for (Attribute a : att.toArray()) {

               System.out.println(a.getName() + ": " + att.get(a.getClass()).toString();




      3)this block print the name and printerstate 0 and printerstate 3, but these values should change if i turn off the printer or i remove it from the lan, but are always the same


      ProcessBuilder builder = new ProcessBuilder("powershell.exe", "get-wmiobject -class win32_printer | Select-Object Name, PrinterState, PrinterStatus | where {$_.Name -eq '"+services[i].getName()+"'}");



              String fullStatus = null;

              Process reg;


              try {

                  reg = builder.start();

                  InputStream inputStream = reg.getInputStream();


                            //this is a method to convert from inputstream to string

                  fullStatus = getStringFromInputStream(reg.getInputStream());


              } catch (IOException e1) {
