The TSP143 LAN thermal receipt printer from Star can be a good way to be able to save money on receipt printers by allowing you printer to a single print from multiple workstations or from tablet devices or simply to a back room printer without having the added expense of a computer to attach to.
To setup this printer you should:
1) Install driver from the CD using the default installation program and default settings.
2) Run the EthernetSetting.exe application. Select "Search LAN for TSP100LAN" (you might get a Firewall warning). Once the app finds the printer, have the app set up a "queue".
In Win XP, the EthernetSetting.exe app can be found here:
In Win 7, the EthernetSetting.exe app can be found here:
