We can print bar codes OK when using *IPDS. The printer is also connected through a Lexmark box alhtough the printer also has a lan card built into it and this can be used if necessary. Many Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

If you can print barcodes using *IPDS on this printer then you should also be able to print them without using *IPDS. The question is – Is it worth the amount of work and headaches that this is likely to cause you?

If you’re going to print from your i-Series then you’ll probably need to change the way your application prints the barcodes – If you’re going to print via the LAN, then you’ll need software that will print your barcodes from the LAN.

Why do you want to print the barcodes without *IPDS?

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Thanks. To be honest it's not the best idea, but clients want it sent that way as they do not want *IPDS going through their firewall. It works fine with *IPDS. We can do it to a different printer but they have a 4247 V03, and it's not that simple. We have one here but it doesn't want to play. Joe

    Hi Joe, Is it an option to send the prints as .pdf documents? Then they should be able to print them on whatever printer they want. I believe I've seen some free utils for converting *IPDS spooled files to .pdf files on the internet. Regards, Martin Gilbert.
