This process would be used if you have more than one LPS on the same network, and you would like to lock down certain On-Demand Print Clients to print from the correct LPS.

Solution

  1. Right click on your Windows icon (World) in the lower left hand side of your computer.
  2. Select Open Windows Explorer.
  3. Navigate out to the following path:

  4.  In the Loftware labeling directory, open a file called LLMClnt.sav in any text editor.

  6. You need to edit the file the following manner:
    1. Replace the computer name with the name of the client in which the LPS is installed on (each line contains the computer name).

    3. The address line will look like this: Address=(IP Address) where IP Address is the IP Address of the LPS client.
  7. You need to click Save As and save the current .sav file as LLMClnt.ini.
  8. Save this file in the same directory as the LLMClnt.sav file.
