IP Print “Load Balancing with two or more default printer”
Only one instance would otherwise send all print jobs to only one printer.
Open the configuration.bat in the new instances, configure for each instance a "printerDefault " and very important the “transportDefault”.
Open in each instance the InternalConfig.xml with notepad and edit the entry: <printed-ok> from 0 to 5000 (msec.)
Now the instance takes every 5 sec a new message from the queue IP. During this time, another instance is able to pick up a message. And so on… The time 5000 seconds is a good time for 2 instances in my opinion.
Don`t open the “Configure.bat”! Then afterwards the value “printed-ok” is 0 again.
