Install Infoplus LocalConnect

LocalConnect will give you the capability to connect your printer and print off your warehouse documents.

Infoplus LocalConnect is an Infoplus Plug-In that lets Infoplus detect and use installed printers and scales. This is the first step in allowing Infoplus to automatically print parcel labels to your local printers, as well as automatically read and input the value displayed on a scale when shipping packages.

If the computer(s) and printer(s) in question are hard-wired, LocalConnect would need to be installed on each machine that has a printer hard-wired to it. Doing so will give Infoplus access to all printers found on machines running LocalConnect. 

If the printers in question are networked devices, LocalConnect would only need to be installed on one machine that has access to the networked printer(s). 

Note that LocalConnect must be online and running for printers to be visible in Infoplus, we recommend making the program run on startup or putting it on a local server.
