Question about Zebra 170XiIIIPlus Thermal Label Printer

Open Question

Hi We have a number of these zebra printers on site, they are all configured similarlily with static IP addresses so the label printing server we have can always contact them.. One of them consistently loses its settings on restart. Immediately on restart it responds to a ping on the manually set address, then as it nears the end of its boot process it switches itself to DHCP and picks up a dynamic address. We have reset this both on the web page and on the printer manually and confirmed the change has been made permanent, but then as soon as it restarts it goes back to defaults again. Any help would be great

SOURCE: Sending DHCP request across diffrent vlans

Hmm... on your DHCP server, try setting the "default router" IP for each pool to be the VLAN ID on the switch.

scope 172.16.0.0 /24
router 172.16.0.1

scope 10.20.8.0 /22
router 10.20.8.1

I think the DHCP replies aren't going back where they should. I've never done this without a router doing all the DHCP, but it does work and i've done it many times. Your config looks spot on for the switch.

SOURCE: sharp ar m237 assigned static ip address

You can print the configuration data by Simulation 22 sub 6.
This is how to :
1) #/P key (program) ON → Asterisk (*) key ON → CLEAR key ON →
Asterisk (*) key ON → Ready for input of a main code of simulation
2) Entering a main code with the 10-key → START key ON
3) Entering a sub code with the 10-key → START key ON
4) Select an item with the scroll key and the item key.
5) The machine enters the mode corresponding to the selected item.
Press START key to start the simulation operation.
To cancel the current simulation mode or to change the main code
and the sub code, press the CUSTOM SETTINGS key.

SOURCE: I followed this suggestion and now the IP address is 0.0.0.0

I had the same problem, after removing the DHCP settings, maybe for an error during the configuration the printer didn't assume the new IP address and it resulted 0.0.0.0 from the configuration page.
No way to connect to the printer until I did a network card reset following this procedure:

************************************
7. Network Card Reset:
a. Turn the printer off.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Hold down the Continue and the Cancel button while powering the printer on.
d. Release the buttons when the Error light (bottom light) stays on solid.
e. Close the front cover and the printer should return to a READY state.
f. Press and release the continue button to print a network settings page.
g. On the page that prints verify the following:
�� Status = Not Connected
�� Active = Yes
�� DHCP,BOOTP,RARP Enabled = Yes, Yes, Yes
�� Address Source = Manual
�� Address = 0.0.0.0
************************************

The printer took a new IP address from the DHCP server.
Since my goal was to set a fixed IP address, I entered the printer configuration through Internet explorer, typing the newly assumed IP address and going to TCP/IP settings where I removed The 'Auto DHCP' and I set the IP address I wanted.

SOURCE: An extra, blank label prints from a Zebra 2746e.

Check media settings in the printer driver. Check version of printer driver. Zebra printersuse an internal printer driver with their Zebra Designer software (Zdesigner driver) or a ZUD (Zebra Universal Driver) for other windows applications. These drivers can be downloaded directly from the zebra website.

Alternatively you can download the seagull scientific driver and use that instead. (used with bartender program)

Label skipping occurs if the media dimensions are not specified correctly. The important ones are label height, and media setting for type of media.

Perform a media calibration before you go changing settings. Power on printer, Hold top and bottom buttons in on control panel for 5 seconds, release bottom button only then when printer starts feeding labels release top button. When printer finishes press feed button.

INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER
These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP Laserjet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc.
This example is for a network HP Laserjet printer.
To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network).

Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0
If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer’s network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

I have a Zebra GK 420 D that has static ip configured. I'm trying to remove the ip manually with the printer not hookup to our network.


The Desktop and Tabletop printer will only show the IP settings for an active ZebraNet Print Server. If the printer shows Active Print Server 'Unknown' here are some possilble causes:

What is the defult ip address for the zebra tlp2844?


When received or when a reset is performed, the default IP address is: 10.3.4.102. The best way to confirm this is to force the printing of a configuration label. Look at the configuration label that is printed. That will contain the "current" IP assigned to the printer. You can download the manuals for this from the Zebra web site using the model number to get to the printer specific page. Choose the download tab.

How do i find the IP address on a Zebra Z4MPlus?


If you can not see it in the LCD menu on the front panel, you can find it by printing the IP info on a label. There is a reset button near the Ethernet jack that will let you reset the print server settings or allow you to print a config label. Load up some media, power the printer on. Once the printer is fully booted, use a paper clip or the like to press the button once. A label will print that details the IP settings. Once you have the IP settings, you can log into the printers web interface by typing the IP address in your browsers URL bar. Do get a copy of the manual.

No ip info on menu


There is a tiny button on the print server back plane that you can press with a paper clip. This will print out a label with your IP address information. Get the IP address (hope that the printer is set for DHCP) and enter this into a web browser. This will take you to a web interface that will let you make configuration changes to the print server and printer. If the printer is set to static IP, change the IP address of your PC to be in the same subnet as the printer and then fire up the browser.
The user name for the printer is ADMIN and the password is 1234 by default. You can also download ZebraNet Bridge from Zebra's web site. This application will find your printer on the network and let you install fonts, upgrade firmware, change settings, etc.

The segement of the print server you select is different from your computer" on Vista,


Meaning that the IP Address of the print server is different from the computer's IP Address.

If you're computer has a static IP Address, you need to assign a static IP Address for your Print Server. To assign a static IP for the print server, you need to open the PSAdmin utility on your computer, locate the TCP/IP and click the plus (+) sign. Double-click the IP Address and you may change it from there.

Make sure that the IP Address of your computer, router and print server are in the same IP range. And make sure that you could ping the IP of the print server.

Then configure the printer port settings and you should be able to print.

Have a great day!
