The Intermec Printer Network Manager™ (IPNM) is a FREE software product provided by Intermec that enables centralized remote printer management across a network. Users can monitor printer status changes and setup alert messages that can be routed to email-enabled devices like cell phones, text pagers or PCs. IPNM enables administrators to simplify the tasks and reduce costs of supporting the operations and maintenance of networked Intermec printers.Bar code label printers can now be managed worldwide from one central location. To make the management of multiple printers easier these printers can be grouped for alert settings. This is a unique function of the Intermec Printer Network Manager software. Administrators can categorize printers into groups by region, business requirement (warehouse, manufacturing, office), specific application or their own personalized choice / setup.Once on the network the IPNM software auto searches and locates all Intermec EasyCoder printers on the network.
Administrators can then change the printer configuration, alerts, upgrade firmware, and even reboot the printers.There are currently 8 standard alert messages to choose from for alerting the administrator when the printer is out of labels, ribbon is low, head lifted, etc. IPNM will provide statistics of the errors or alerts per group or by printer. The log file may then be exported for use in other applications.IPNM supports all EasyCoder printers that are using EasyLAN and EasyLAN™ Wireless interfaces. Full functionality is available on printers EasyCoder 501XP, 601XP, F2, F4, and F4ci, PF2i, PF4i, PF4ci, PM4i, PX4i and PX6i.Large and medium sized companies looking to reduce management and labor costs for their bar code label printers will find the Intermec Printer Network Manager an invaluable tool.
