TCP/IP printers on additional serial ports
Click on to add TCP/IP printers to the list.
A mask with the following settings options will open:
Activate TCP/IP printer on this interface
Maps the interface defined below in a TCP/IP port.
Device name: The printer can be connected to one of the following connections, provided that they are available on the device:
Data are forwarded bidirectionally at serial interfaces. This means that other serial devices such as barcode scanners or scales can be operated too.
Search for devices...: Opens a dialog allowing you to select the device file. 3 device files are available for each device; the Designation column shows the type of device file:
(GENERIC) [device designation]: Generic type. The name of the device file ends in a consecutive number which depends on the boot procedure or the order of insertion. Example: /dev/ttyUSB0
(BY PORT) [device designation]: According to USB port. The device file is in the /dev/usbserial/ directory. The name of the device file ends in the number of the USB port that the device is plugged into. Example: /dev/usbserial/ttyUSB_P12
(BY USBID) [device designation]: According to USB ID. The device file is in the /dev/usbserial/ directory. The name of the device file ends as follows: _V[Vendor ID]_P[Product ID]. Example: /dev/usbserial/ttyUSB_V067b_P2303
TCP/IP port number: Port on which the interface is to be mapped (default: 9100).
Poll criterion: Criterion according to which the interfaces are mapped.
Always: Maps constantly without polling.
DSR (M1): Maps only if the relevant line is set by the serial device.
DCD (M5): Maps only if the relevant line is set by the serial device.
Poll frequency: Amount of time between polls (default: 1 sec)
Speed: Input and output speed (default 9600 baud).
Parity: Parity bits that are to be used. Possible values:
Stop bits: Use up to two stop bits. (default: 1)
Word width: Sets the number of bits used per byte.
Use RTS/CTS flow control
Hardware flow control will be used.
Not used (default)
Use XON/XOFF flow control
Software flow control by sending start/stop signs will be used.
Not used (default)
Use DSR flow control
Hardware flow control with DSR for output will be used.
