Triad is a small helper tool to enable direct printing from Gamma to ZEBRA printers without the need for certificates on the printer or a network proxy. If you don’t use Triad, you can follow the steps here to connect your network printer to Gamma.

This article will show you the steps to install and use Triad.

Step 1: Make sure your printer is connected to your computer and the printer is using the same network as with Gamma.

Step 2: Download Triad here. The app is available for both Windows and Mac.

Step 3: Follow the steps in the installation guide. Triad will automatically run on start-up.

For Windows

After installing, the app shortcut will appear in the system tray.

For Mac

After installing, the app shortcut will appear in the notification area at the top-right corner of the screen.


  • Make sure you allow outbound to this domain

  • This domain will be pointed to the IP address, so please make sure your system will allow it.

  • The Triad app will need to reserve a port in the range from 3000 to 3005 to communicate with Gamma. And it will call the network printer by WS, WSS, HTTP, or HTTPS method (this depends on the protocol that you setup in Gamma).

Step 4: Connect Gamma to your printer

  • Go to Studio Settings -> Printing -> Network Printers -> Click Add

  • Add a name for your printer and fill in the network address of your printer and then click ‘Test print’ and then ‘Save’.

In the Network address field:

Enter the IP and port of your printer following the example below the input field. Network Address must start with the protocol http:// or https:// or wss:// or ws://, then the IP address and the port number of the printer. For example with printer ZT410, the IP address will appear directly on the home screen.

You can then go to the Network menu to find the port number of the printer.

In conclusion, in the Network address field in the 'Add network printer' dialog in Gamma, you will need to fill in - this will be the network address of the printer.
