POS system

Hi,

This is related to the POS System. I am used to  Desktop Support (Desktop, Laptop, User Support, etc) and  Server Support (Window 2000, 2003 and 2008).

I got zero knowledge related to the POS System.

I need somebody explaining a little bit of it please

My Questions:

First: Please explain a little bit of POS System

Second: Per my guessing, This system should have a  NIC card which is connected to a SPECIAL switch (for POS)? or others?

Third: After the Connection was established at POS, what software or program would be used? (so it can select “all items and their prices”, and open the Cash Register ,etc)

Fourth: What language or command was used to configure the POS? Cisco IOS?

Your explanation is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

tjie

Hi A,

1) The components of POS, possibly
- The tube or post or column for the Cabling
- And the Cash Register
2) I believe the "Main device" for POS is Cash Register, right? (please correct me when I am wrong)

3) So the daily problem of POS, I believe MAINLY related to the "Cash Register"; right?

4) If you troubleshoot the Cash Register, what cable would you use to bridge the cash register and your laptop? Is it the same as the console cable (that is used for Cisco)? Is the Delphi command is similar to IOS command from Cisco? (such as "enable", "config-t", "show run", etc?

Thank you
