Chapter 1

About the LabelWriter Print Server

Congratulations on purchasing a DYMO LabelWriter print server. Your print server will give you years of reliable service. We encourage you to take a few minutes to review how to use and care for your print server.

Using the print server, you can connect your LabelWriter 400 or later series printer directly to your network, without dedicating a computer to printer sharing. Now everyone connected to your network can print to a single LabelWriter printer. We have no doubt that the LabelWriter print server will make your job easier and more efficient.

Print Server Features

Your LabelWriter print server can be used to share any LabelWriter 400 or later series printer, including the LabelWriter Twin Turbo and LabelWriter Duo.

The print server connects to your network using a standard Ethernet connection.

Become familiar with the major components of the print server.

Installing the Software

The Control Center software included with your print server gives you quick access to everything that you need to configure and manage your print server. You can install the software on any computer that is connected to your network.

Installing the Software in Windows

You can install the Control Center software in Windows.

To install the software in Windows

folder to open the Print Server Control Center.

Configuring the Print Server

When you first install the print server, the server is automatically assigned an IP address. Every time the software is launched, the IP address is displayed next to the server name in the Control

Center window.

By default, the server is configured to automatically get an IP address. If you are using the print server on a small office or home network, we recommend that you configure the server to use a static IP address. This will ensure that the computers connected to your network will always be able to locate the print server.

By default, the static IP address for the print server is 192.168.1.100. You only need to change the last three numbers. When assigning a static IP address, check your router to be sure that the IP address you choose is not already in use. Refer to your router documentation for information on how to do this. A good practice when adding a print server or other shared network device to a network is to start with a number toward the top of the range, for example 192.168.1.250, and work down from there.

Note

If you do not set a static IP address, write down the IP address that appears next to the server name in the Control Center window. You will need this IP address to add the printer to your computer.

The IP address is now displayed next to the server name in the Control Center window.

Note

Write down this IP address; you will need this IP address to add the printer to your computer.

Next, you need to add the printer to your computer. See Chapter 3, Adding a Printer for

information on adding the printer in your specific operating system.

Chapter 3

Adding a Printer

In order to print to the LabelWriter printer that is connected to the print server, you must first add the printer to your computer. You can add the printer to any or all of the computers connected to your network.

You must have the LabelWriter printer drivers installed on your local computer to add a printer. The printer drivers are included in the DYMO Label Software installation.

Note

Because the LabelWriter Duo printer is actually two printers in one, you need to add both the label printer and the tape printer to your computer. These two printers show up separately in the printer list.

This chapter describes how to add a printer in Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac, and Linux.

Adding a Printer in Windows XP

Configuring the Server

Changing the TCP/IP Configuration

You can configure the print server to obtain an IP address automatically or assign a static IP address that you choose.

If you are using the print server on a small office or home network, we recommend that you configure the server to use a static IP address. This will ensure that the computers connected to your network will always be able to locate the print server.

By default, the static IP address for the print server is 192.168.1.100. You only need to change the last three numbers. When assigning a static IP address, check your router to be sure that the IP address you choose is not already in use. Refer to your router documentation for information on how to do this. A good practice when adding a print server or other shared network device to a network is to start with a number toward the top of the range, for example 192.168.1.250, and work down from there.

To obtain an IP address automatically

1

Click General Configuration on the left side of the Configuration page.
