Summary

One of the key component of TEKLYNX CENTRAL (TC) is its printing interface. Users can submit label printing requests from any computer using a supported web browser. This opens up several new considerations. One of which is – how can we restrict printing by user from a computer to print to one or a few printers. This article shows the steps required to enable the restriction.
