Configure Server Direct Print on Epson Intelligent Receipt Printers

The previous implementation of receipt printing relied on local communication between the client browser and the printer.  This was not able to be done when the browser used https, and can no longer be done with recent updates to Chrome security settings.

Using Server Direct Print removes this requirement as the printer receives its print requests directly from the SimplySwim server instead of the client browser.

The majority of work to configure Server Direct Print needs to be completed on the Epson printer.  This is not something that can be done remotely for existing clients.  For new clients, where the printer has been purchased from SimplySwim, we can configure the printer prior to shipping it to site.



Printer Configuration



  • Find the Serial Number of the printer.  This is usually found on the sticker underneath the printer.

  • Update the Server 1 Interval(s) value to 3



  • Click Apply
