Setting Up You Point of Sale Hardware
If you purchased additional hardware from
Aknaf Software to work with your computer please follow these instructions.
Printers: Aknaf Software recommends the Star Micronics brand of receipt printer to
work with ADVANTAGE Salon Software
and Spa Software. The Star Receipt printer
comes in several models; the SP212 and SP216 are the most popular and are labeled with a
large sp200 label on the printer. The SP212
is beige while the SP216 is a dark gray or black. They
are a parallel printer type, which means they plug in the parallel port on your computer. You must have a standard printer cable to attach
to the SP212 or SP216. They require 3-inch
wide receipt paper. This kind of paper can be
found at any office supply center or store and comes in single, duplicate or triplicate.
The receipt printer must be your default
printer in your windows printer setup. You
can use the Star printer drivers that will be on the original installation CD Rom that you
used when you installed ADVANTAGE Salon Software
and Spa Software. We
recommend just installing the Generic Text Only printer driver to use with the Star
Cash Drawers: The star interfaced cash drawers plug directly
into the receipt printer. These cash drawers
have a wire that looks like a telephone wire that plug into the receipt printer. Serial Cash drawers plug into a 9pin port on the
back of your computer. You will need to copy
either draw1.bat ( for a cash drawer that plugs into your com1 port ) or draw2.bat for com2 port from the installation cd and put
that file in the salon folder on your computer.
