Prepare the Printer to Receive WML Content via FTP

NEED
WML files – and any .nrd files used by a WML menu structure – must be stored in the printers E: memory location. While the files are first being transmitted to the printer, they should not be processed by the printers ZPL formatting engine. This can be done by configuring the SGD settings
"ip.ftp.enable"
and
"ip.ftp.execute_file"
.
The
ip.ftp.enable"
setting allows the printer to receive content via the FTP protocol. The
“ip.ftp.execute_file”
setting controls the printers’ ability to process or not process commands received via the FTP protocol using the printers ZPL engine. By default, both settings are enabled.
Set
"ip.ftp.enable"
to
"on"
and
"ip.ftp.execute_file"
to
"off"
.
To do this, send these commands to the printer:
! U1 setvar "ip.ftp.enable" "on" ! U1 setvar "ip.ftp.execute_file" "off" ! U1 getvar "ip.ftp.enable" ! U1 getvar "ip.ftp.execute_file"
To confirm these commands are correctly set, send the
getvar
command to check the settings. To do this, send these commands to the printer:
! U1 getvar "ip.ftp.enable" ! U1 getvar "ip.ftp.execute_file"
If a terminal emulation program is being used, the following response should be returned from the printer.
"on""off"
Only printers using the Internal 10/100 wired or Internal Wireless Plus & Wireless Plus print server can use the
! U1 setvar "ip.ftp.execute_file" "off"
command. For other print servers, use the
“CISDFCRC16”
command method detailed below.
