Hi Everyone,

I have a Zebra 2844 label printer installed on a workstation as  a through the network as: \\MACHINE_NAME\LABEL_SHARE_NAME.

I use this label printer to print UPS shipping labels.

Now this user also has a web-based software that could utilize the same Zebra printer but with different drivers.

Is it possible to do this with the network shared printer?

I was able to do this successfully with another user who has the same printer installed locally to his machine via USB. I used one USB port for each driver. I haven't figured out how to do this through the network.

Is it even possible?...If yes, how?

Appreciate any help!!
