To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Compré este servidor de impresión con la idea de poner una SAMSUNG ML-1915 en red y oh sorpresa, ni siguiendo el manual me detecta la impresora, pensé que era por el modelo o algo más así que puse una HP-840c y tampoco funcionó, una total decepción, al final terminé por instalar una PC mini con todo lo necesario para compartir no solo impresoras. Ojalá que no sea el caso de otros usuarios con este producto.
I purchased this print server to get my Epson Stylus Photo R200 to be available on my network using an IP address. The printer only has a USB port and I wanted to be able to use it from my MacBook Pro laptop using Wi-Fi through my router. It didn't work at all even from my Windows PC using ethernet connection. The list of compatible printers didn't list my printer but it did say that not being on the list did not mean it wouldn't work - only that it hadn't been tested, Anyway I would suggest you don't waste your money on this if your printer isn't on the list of compatible printers.
I bought this on iogear's statement that "...it integrates Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) in this print server...". Imagine my surprise when I configured it, hooked it up to my network, telnetted to port 631 (the standard IPP port), and... connection refused! And before you get all up in my face about telnet, that is the standard method to connect to a TCP/IP port, and the first debugging step. If you can't telnet to a port, it ain't open on TCP.
However, when I plugged my printer in, I found that it would accept connections on port 9100, which is the standard JetPrint port. So what's going on?
I'm not sure, but one thing that I am sure about is that it does not "integrates Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) in this print server" because I would have been able to connect to it otherwise. I suspect that the engineering specs did not get translated properly to marketing-speak.
This worked perfectly for me. For those that wonder, it will run your Dymo labeler. It serves my Labelwriter 4XL. I almost deducted 1 point because it is finicky to get started in Windows, but it's windows problem in how to setup a network print server, but I figured it in 10 minutes, so I haven't deducted. But be forewarned that you will need to setup a network printer and use the software that comes with Iogear Print Server to get it to work, and you need to assign it a static address, not one that is dynamic and changes all the time. Once it works, it works well and works across three of my computers using our wireless network. So, we only need one Dymo labeler. Much cheaper than the Dymo print server and does the same thing.
UPDATE: While it did work, it kept on disconnecting. I have to move my rating from a 5 to a 1. Too much aggravation, unplugging, starting again, and so on. Don't know if t he problem is only for DYMO. I was hopeful, but I read others with similar drop out problems.
