I'm looking for suggestions:
I have a client in Minnesota that wants to do some outdoor printing of tickets for access control at a gate. (Paid Parking Ramp)
I have found some ticket printers that will handle the cold, but they are RS-232C DB-9 connectors, and the Printer languages are listed as TCL™ Printer Language (Page Description Language); Epson-Compatible Line Printer; Backward Compatible with KBM-60
Is this something I can communicate with through a printer driver, or do I need to use something like Monkey Bread to communicate through Serial commands?
Any help appreciated.
I have a client printing to Epson dot matrix printers (can't get them to switch to plain paper, they want NCR copies) and it works just fine. So there's a chance that you can just install the printer driver and print.
But the only way to be sure is to get a printer and try it out.
