Steps for setting up DataNinja hardware required for your first barcode label print:
Unpack your DataNinja Hub. Connect with Power and internet (ethernet) preferably in a network closet next to your router/modem. If you will be using the Hub for scale connectivity consider cable lengths when deciding where to put your hub.
To print labels via DataNinja, your printer needs to be connected to the internet on the same network as your DataNinja hub. Connect your printer via Ethernet cable or use the wifi setup instructions below.
You will know the printer is connected when the printer's network icon is green.
Not All Printers have Wifi connection abilities
Ethernet Only, Wifi Only, and BOTH are all possible printer connectivity variants. An Ethernet-Only printer will be unresponsive to wifi setup attempts.
In DataNinja, click on the gear icon and select "Printers" under Tools
On the printers page, select the down arrow next to the blue "Add Printer" button at the top right hand corner of the page. Select "Discover Printers". Then click "I Understand"
Once the printer discovery has completed you should see a line on the printers page for each printer you connected to internet in step 2. Each will look like this:
Click View on the Discovered Printer. Click Edit to update the printer Name and choose the Printer Location (ex: HQ).
Select Label Templates for each label type.
Preform a Quick Receive. Verify the label prints from the selected printer.
