Microsoft Accounting 2007 + Credit Card Reader through Terminal Services
Posted on 2009-04-13
My company uses Microsoft Accounting Professional 2007. Our POS system has a Magtek USB credit card reader. We use the built in payment service to accept credit card payments. When accounting is run locally it works flawlessly.
We are opening a new store and would like to remote into the central server with terminal services to keep only one accounting database. This works perfectly except for the Magtek card reader.
From what I understand the card reader is a keyboard emulator. When I remote into our server, open notepad and swipe a card it works. But inside accounting when I receive a payment, click "Swipe" then swipe the card nothing happens.
Does anyone have any ideas?
