    I have some problemas searching Zebra RW420 from a PDA Windows Mobile 6. I connect first and everything it's ok, I select a port of the PDA and it's ok, too, but the thing it's that whenever I am going to beam a simple file txt, the PDA starts to search and it doesn't discover it, so I can't beam anything.

    Any suggestions!

I don't if this matters for Windows Mobile or not but there is no driver listed for it based on the website:

The problem is that Zebra printers use a PCL language to print with. Forms have to be programmed into the computer being used. Then they are downloaded into the application you are printing with.
These printers are designed for label and invoice use. The applications designed for them send the data over. They use them for delivery services to print with. I know bakery trucks use these in the vehicle. There not designed for straight text printing.
If you have ever seen label printers that they use for shipping out Fed Ex and UPS, that's what this printer does.
If you go to this link here you can get an idea as to how they are programmed:

If you have any questions about programming forms for them, let me know. I had to go to a special school in Atlanta several years ago to learn how to do that.

I have a problem printing to a Zebra printer Zm600

I am not a Linux Guru but is the printer the prints go to the Default printer on the server you attach to? if so that will be the problem. You need to map the printer back to you local laptop. If this was a Windows Terminal Server environment this is done automatically when using RDP. it will be similar to the way you map your local Floppy or CD.
