Before we get to configuring your printer in posBoss, you will need to get the printer(s) all plugged in and ready to be printed to. Usually this is a very simple process but some printers need a bit of a kick start.
If you're struggling with this part, please get in touch with our support team and let them know where you're hitting an issue.
