If you are using a MacOS with the ZPL printer, you must setup a raw printer queue before you can print.

  1. Make sure that the ZPL printer is connected to your computer and is powered on.
  2. Open a terminal window and run:
    lpinfo -v

    You will see the port that is being used by your ZPL printer. Please make a note of this port.

  3. Open a browser window on your Macintosh and go to this address:
  4. If you are prompted to enable the CUPS Web Portal, enter the same username and password that you use to logon to your Macintosh.
  5. Select the Administration tab and click Add Printer
  6. Enter any name for the ZPL printer and the port that you found by running the lpinfo command.
  7. Press the Continue button.
  8. Select Raw for Make and press Continue.
  9. Make sure that Raw Queue is selected for Model and click the Add Printer button.
  10. Your ZPL printer is now configured and will appear in the Miva Merchant printer drop-down list. More detailed instructions with screenshots may be found in the JZebra Raw Printer setup instructions
