Do anyone has experience on connecting to an ethernet thermal printer? Years ago I made a little app to print on a serial thermal printer, but now I have no idea on what to do to start…
tcpsocket is a good start.
- Find the make/model
- Determine if you need to send it raw commands or just “print” to it
- If raw, find protocol and implement, if print just print to it
Create a lpr printer pointing to it and create a text file with text/commands and lp -d printer textfile
If windows, don’t know but something similar must exist.
usually you can send command (you have to see the printer documentation as you did for the serial one) using a TCPSocket
