How to configure the Zebra GX430t printer

To configure the Zebra GX430T printer, follow the steps below:

 

1. Install the application Zebra Setup Utilities.

For the correct configuration of the printing equipment, the application Zebra Setup Utilities must be installed. This application allows you to set up the necessary parameters in the printer, both for the internet and for the ticket size. You can download the application for the installation via this link: Zebra Setup Utilities.

Once downloaded, install following the steps given by the program itself.

 

2. When you have the Zebra Setup Utilities application installed, connect the Zebra GX430T printer to the equipment via the USB cable and open the application Zebra Setup Utilities.

 

3. Configure the parameters following the steps which appear in the images.

  • Click on Configure Printer Settings.

If several printers appear in the application, we must work out which of them is the one which is connected. To do that, hold down on the printer which we want to configure and click on the button Configure Printer Settings.

If the printer we are trying to configure is the same one which is connected by USB, it will appear in the Firmware version a few seconds later. Otherwise, Getting data will appear.

  • Select the printer and start the process of configuring parameters and print size.
  • Next select the entered ticket size, in our case 80mm x 153mm, and click on Next.

  • In the Printer Settings Wizardscreen personalize the print speed and darkness which will be applied to the printing. These parameters can be variable. Those that appear in the image are the recommended parameters.

  • In Print Mode choose the option Direct and in Media Type choose Mark Sensing.The other parameters should be left as shown in the image.

  • Select the options as they appear in the image and at this point of the configuration we can select the option Finish as the rest of the options are not necessary.

4. Configure the internet parameters.

  • To start the configuration, return to the initial screen and select the option Printer Connectivityas it appears in the image.

  • In the section Connectivity Type, select the option (Wired).

  • Next, select the option Internal Print Server and click on Next.

  • In the screen where you have to select the IP address choose the option Static IP as it appears in the image and enter an IP address. Pay special attention to this screen as it's very important for the correct configuration.
  • We can put any IP address we like, bearing in mind that we must apply an IP of the same range as that which we apply to the equipment that will be used. For example, if we apply the IP168.5.1 for the equipment, we must configure an IP 192.168.5.XXX for the printer. Where X is any number between 1 and 254, except that asigned to the equipment. 
  • Once all fields have been completed, click on the Finish button to end the configuration 
  • After this, switch off the printer so that the changes can be made. Disconnect the USB cable and connect the ethernet cable which is going to be used.

To check that the configuration of the printer is correct, press the button at the front and hold it down until the LED at the top starts flashing. At this point stop pressing the button and the printer will print a sheet showing the parameters. With the printer information, you can check if the IP address parameters and the ticket limits are correctly configured.

 

Note: If several printers appear in the Zebra Application, we must work out which of them is the one which is connected. To do that, hold down on one of them and click on the button Configure Printer Settings. In this screen we must look at the Firmware version section.

If the printer we are trying to configure is the same one which is connected by USB, it will appear in the Firmware version a few seconds later. Otherwise, Getting data will appear.
