Applicable To

ZBI Developer, SNMP, on-printer debugging.

Resolution / Answer

The SNMP settings on the printer and ZBI developer are used to control how ZBI-Developer interacts with a printer on the on-printer debugging features are in use.  ZBI Developer will use SNMP command ("set" and "get") to activate the debugging features on the printer.  The default settings are the recommended settings.   


Some networks may be configured to not allow SNMP traffic.   Please consult with your network administrator first if the on-printer debugging features are not working when you have successfully connected to a printer.  The connection to a networked printer can be test by right-clicking over the printer in the Printers View and choosing Print Configuration label. If the connection is active,  a configuration label should print. 

SNMP related sgd commands for Link-OS printers include the following:
ip.snmp.enable        Choices: on,off
ip.snmp.get_community_name 
ip.snmp.set_community_name
