Setting up the DYMO LabelWriter Print Server with your LabelWriter 400 – 450 printer:

Please note: DYMO does not support setups using hubs, switches or multiple subnets. A direct connection between the printer and print server, then print server and your router is required.

The Control Center software included with your print server gives you quick access to everything that you need to configure and manage your print server. You can install the software on a computer which is connected to the network where you would like to share the printer. Please note that the Control Center is only compatible with MacOS versions up to 10.13 (High Sierra).
