POS Setup

The POS Setup menu displays/defines parameters required for Simplify-POS communications and other POS-related parameters. The contents of this menu vary depending on communications type. There are three versions, used for:

  • IP communications with Simplify as server (non-Pay@Table systems)

  • IP communications with Simplify as client (Pay@Table systems)

  • RS-232 communications or USB emulating RS-232

The appropriate menu for your system will be displayed, based on the setting of the parameter that controls the Simplify-POS communications type.

IP Communications, Simplify as Server

In non-Pay@Table systems, Simplify acts as TCP/IP server. POS Setup can be used on these systems as follows:

Access POS Setup

  1. Select POS Setup on the Elavon Main Menu to display the Client IP Setup menu:

Available Parameters

Port:

View/modify port ID on which the POS Server listens for the Simplify client.

Secured:

View whether or not Simplify-POS communications are encrypted. (0 = No encryption, 1 = Encryption)

Method:

View encryption type used for Simplify-POS communications. (1=SSLv2; 2=SSLv3; 3=TLSv1; 4=SSLv23; 5=TLSv1.1; 6=TLSv1.2)

IP Communications, Simplify as Client

In Pay@Table systems, Simplify acts as a TCP/IP client. POS Setup can be used on these systems as follows:

Available Parameters

0-IP:

View/modify IP Address of the POS.

1-Port:

View/modify port ID on which the POS Server listens for the Simplify client.

2-Persist:

View/modify persistence of the Simplify-POS link. (0 = Non-persistent, 1 = Persistent)

3-Store:

View/modify the Store Number.

4-Font:

View/modify the Font Size for receipts. (1 = XXSMALL; 2 = XSMALL; 3 = SMALL; 4 = MEDIUM; 5 = LARGE (the default); 6 = XLARGE; 7 = XXLARGE)
If a receipt field does not fit on one line using the defined font, it will wrap around to print on multiple lines.

5-Secured:

View whether or not Simplify-POS communications are encrypted. (0 = No encryption, 1 = Encryption)

6-Method:

View encryption type used for Simplify-POS communications. (1=SSLv2; 2=SSLv3; 3=TLSv1; 4=SSLv23; 5=TLSv1.1; 6=TLSv1.2)

RS-232 Communications (or USB Emulating RS-232)

On systems using RS-232 Communications or USB Emulating RS-232, POS Setup can be used as follows:

Available Parameters

0-Port:

ID of the POS COM port that communicates with the PIN Pad. 3 = RS-232. 10 = USB emulating RS-232.

1-Baud:

Speed used for Simplify-POS communications.

2-Databit:

Number of bits in each byte that are used to transmit data. This value should be set to 8 (the default).

3-Parity:

Type of check bit used to detect corrupted data. This value should be set to N =no parity (the default).

4-Stopbit:

The number of bits in the end-of-text marker. This value should be set to 1 (the default).

5-v4683:

Two-byte retry parameter. Byte 1 defines the number of retries. Byte 2 defines the interval between retries (in seconds). Change only upon instruction from Elavon.
