Can Bullzip run on a Windows Network print server ?

Postby Bob123 » Sun May 30, 2010 4:03 pm

Hello,

The only way I see this PDF printer will work is if it is installed locally on a system.

I installed it on 2 print servers of mine in a Windows 2003 domain.

From a desktop that does not have the software installed ---- I connected to both print servers that has the PDF Printer installed. I opened a TIFF document, pointed to the Bullzip printer on my print server and nothing happened.

I can use the PDF printer when I'm physically on the print server, but ---- I can not use it/convert my TIFF to a PDF going across the network, not like printing from a desktop to a network printer.

I also see I can not assign a TCP/IP port to the PDF Printer on my print servers, so ---- it can not communicate.

Any way this software can be used by my users across my LAN if they target the device on the print server, or ----- must they have the software installed on their local desktops. My users all run Windows XP professional SP3


Thanks,
Bob

Hi Bob,

It is not officially supported. However, it should be possible using the directions at the link below.

Keep me posted on your progress.

NOTE: It requires version 7.1.0.1195 or later of the printer. This version was just released.

Best regards,
Jacob
