Computers That Need ConnectEasy Installed

In order to relay print jobs to a printer, ConnectEasy needs to be installed and running on a computer that is connected to the printer receiving the print jobs. Which computer needs to have ConnectEasy installed will depend on your computer, printer, and network configuration.

  • One computer physically connected to one or more printers: If you only ship from one computer and this computer is physically connected via USB to any printer you might print to, then ConnectEasy will need to be installed on this one computer.

  • Multiple computers, off-network, where only one computer is connected to a printer: If you use multiple computers that are not networked to each other, then only the computer connected to the printer will need to have ConnectEasy installed. ShippingEasy will be able to send print jobs from any computer to the printer.

  • Multiple computers, on a network, where only one computer is connected to a printer: If you use multiple computers that are networked to each other, either physically or wirelessly, then only the computer connected to the printer will need to have ConnectEasy installed. ShippingEasy will be able to send print jobs from any computer to the printer.

  • Multiple computers, on a network, where no computers are connected to a printer: If you use multiple computers and a printer that are all networked to each other, either physically or wirelessly, then only one computer will need to have ConnectEasy installed. ShippingEasy will be able to send print jobs from any computer to the printer.

  • Multiple computers physically connected to the same printer: If you use multiple computers that are all physically connected via USB to the same printer, then only one of the computers needs to have ConnectEasy installed.
