Using NRGship on Older Macs

The recent expiration of root certificates has caused some issues with older Macs running 10.10 Yosemite and 10.11 El Capitan. This is not an issue with NRGship, it is due to the fact that updates for these older operating systems have not been provided by Apple since 2018 so they cannot connect securely to modern day websites.

We highly recommend updating to 10.13 macOS High Sierra or above for any Mac released since 2010. You can find more infromation on supported hardware for macOS High Sierra on the Apple website.

If you have a 2009 vintage Mac, you could also update to 10.12 macOS Sierra.

We do realize that updates may not be possible on older hardware.  With a few simple steps you can edit your security settings to allow access to the nrgsoft website on these older computers as a possible workaround. In the video below we’ll show you how you can go into Safari and enable trust settings.

Using NRGship with PrintNode

Current releases of all NRGship Pro products for desktop and FileMaker Pro include a feature that allows for printing to remote thermal printers using PrintNode. This can come in handy if you are working remote and want to print labels to a printer in a warehouse used for fulfillment, or if you’re working in a workgroup setting and want to share a thermal printer that does not have built-in networking. First you will need to create a PrintNode account and then install the PrintNode application on the workstation that has the thermal printer connected. Afterwards you can go into NRGship preferences and drop in your API Key so that you’ll be able to select the printer thru the Advanced Printing.

PrintNode is free for up to 50 prints per month, while paid accounts with up to 5,000 prints start at $9.

PrintNode also works great for workstations running NRGship with FileMaker Pro in a windows Terminal Server session, or for printing to a thermal printer via FileMaker Go or Web Direct.

Please contact NRG support if you need any assistance with PrintNode setup.
