Wyse V10LE / Zebra Z4M

I have added a Zebra printer to a Wyse V10 LE and specified the "Generic / Text Only" driver.  I am unable to get the Wyse terminal to print anything on the Zebra printer.  What do you I have to do to get this to work?

I cannot even get the Wyse terminal to print ascii text on the printer.

I won't swear it will print plain ASCII, at all.  The printer has two possible connections; parallel or serial.  How is it connected and did you check the baud rate if it is serial?

I had it connected via LPT1 - maybe I should try serial.

You need to go study the POS software you are setting up and follow its directions for configuring printers.  Parallel should be easier than serial.

With this driver and some time spent - we got the printer to work.
