Dymo Label Printer on a Tomato Print Server


In case anyone's wondering, and since we couldn't find any references to this anywhere, a Dymo LabelWriter 400 will work perfectly well with a Tomato Print Server.  We used an ASUS WL-520gU router with the Teddy-Bear build of Tomato firmware.  Setting up the printer on the router was just a matter of plugging it in, and installing the printer within Windows simply required a TCP/IP printer port to be created, using the IP address of the router, and the settings for Generic Network Card.

We noticed stability issues when printing large volumes of labels (50+) via a router with a small amount of RAM.  But for small batches this technique should work perfectly well.
