Cannot Send File Contents Directly To Printer フォローする

Hi,

I have a little bit of an odd situation.  I am using BarTender 9.4 on a Windows 2003 server.

 

I have set commander to trigger on TCP/IP socket.  (This works).  Commander takes the data from the TCP/IP socket and calls a VBS script which pulls all the data I need to print on the label.  It also.....and here is the odd part, reads in a file of ZPL (Zebra) commands and substitutes the fields for the actual values and writes that file out.  Unfortunately I have to do it this way as I don't have a .btw file for this.  Additionally, this file of ZPL commands is used by our warehouse system, so I had to use it.

 

My challenge is just getting this file to the printer.  I have tried just about everything I can think of.  I have tried using command prompt to print /D:\\Server\Printername, but apparently print.exe is not compatible with SMB 2.0 which is on this server.  I have tried the copy command to the printer as well as the TYPE command.  I have tried creating batch files, etc.  Nothing seems to work.

 

So I am looking for suggestions on what to try.

 

The file I am trying to send is properly formatted with ZPL.  Not sure why I can't get it to print.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!!!

If you have a Seagull driver installed and attached to the printer, those drivers include a command line utility called "SSDAL.EXE" which offers commands that do what you need.  You should find this in C:\WINDOWS (normally already in your path).

 

The following should send a file called "example.zpl" containing raw ZPL to the printer:

 

ssdal /p "Zebra Z4000 (203 dpi)" send example.zpl

 

Obviously you'll need to change the printer name to whatever your printer is.  It should work with "\\server\printername" as well.
