Printer to host session
I'm looking to replace a special PSION mobile terminal on a forklifter running the TekTerm software (not longer available)
by a standard mobile Windows 7 PC with Tera Term connected with WLAN to the Unix Host.
We have a scale (weighbridge) on the forklifter connected to serial port COM1 of the terminal.
The host application does communication to the scale in both directions with the DEC media copy escape sequences
In detail we send
ESC [ ? 9 i # Start printer to host session
ESC [ 5 i # Start printer mode
xxx... # request weight from scale
yyy... # Scale sends weight string that is transfered to host application
ESC [ 4 i # Stop printer mode
ESC [ ? 8 i # Stop printer to host session
Is there any option in Tera Term to enable the DEC "Printer-to-host session" ?
