ZPL file automatically send to a Zebra printer

Post by scorpiiphoenicis » Tue Nov 19, 2019 3:24 pm

Dear support,

I have NiceWatch Server 5.4.4 (build 7007).
We have the plan to migrate to a more up to date version next year.

In the meantime I like to use nicewatch server to send ZPL file to the correct printer.

I send a webservice request and in return I receive a zpl file in purpose to print a label.
How can I print automatically the labael sending the file directly to the printer ?

Thanks
Christophe

scorpiiphoenicis,

Unfortunately, NiceLabel 5 is end of life for support since July 2017:
https://www.nicelabel.com/products/spec ... cle-policy

Of course, this is not an official support channel, so anybody is free to provide guidance using NiceWatch. In general terms, all you must do is forwarded the received payload via TCP/IP to the designated printer. In NiceLabel Automation 2019, it is possible to save the incoming data (received by the WebService trigger), and simply send that data to a printer using the "Send data to TCP/IP port" action. Of course, the destination is your printer's IP address (port is usually 9100). The content of the message should just be your received payload text.

Please consider purchasing NiceLabel 2019. You may download a fully-functional free trial here:
