To complete the setup, you need to download and install the application on the computer to which the printer is connected. To do so, go to https://app.printnode.com/app/downloads. Attention! Be sure to download version 4.24.0, not the current one. Find it lower on the page and click the "DOWNLOAD" button next to the operating system your computer runs on.
Once the application is installed, launch it and log in to your account using the email and password you specified during registration at PrintNode.com.
If you get a "Resolving timed out after 7111 milliseconds" or similar error message when logging into your account, go to the application settings section by clicking on the "Network settings" button under the password input field. Next, you need to change the "Curl" value of the "Network" parameter to "Requests" and return to the login window by clicking on the "Back to login" button. Enter your email and password and login again.
This is the last step. Once you have successfully installed the application and logged into your account, your printer data will be sent to PrintNode.com. Now you have to go back to the company settings on CARRObiz.com and go to the "Print documents" section. By this time you should have entered the API key from PrintNode.com. If you have not done this, go back to step 6. Then you need to update the list of available printers by clicking the "update" button and choose the default printer.
Important: this application must be running on the computer connected to the printer. This is important both for label printing and for setting up its operation.
Congratulations! If you have done everything correctly, your printer and software will be ready to work.
