ASP Based POS Printer Control Characters for Cash Drawer

Hello:

I am working on a asp web based point of sale system and one of the requirements is to be able to send a printer control character to auto-open the cash drawer and send a paper "cut" to the receipt printer.

I found this article to assist with my first issue which was how to bypass the print dialogue box, but I'm wondering if anyone else has worked on a project like this that is web-based where they had to send control characters to a specific printer automatically ? Optimally It would be great if I didn't always have to use the default printer; this EE article addresses that a little then stops.

Thanks for your help !

Unfortunately i haven't been able to ever do it on ASP. We had done similar thing on VB.NET, Check this link which might help you http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;EN-US;322090

Thank you. I did it in vba once. No way to port a vb.net solution over to asp.net is there ? By compling it in vb.net then calling that dll from asp.net or something to that effect ?

I know there are some POS systems out there that are web based; I'm not sure if they are using java or asp or some other tool. I can't imagine that they don't automatically print directly to the receipt printer and automatically open the cash drawer. Does anyone have any ideas at all on this ?  Thanks for your help. Raising points again.
