Step
Four
Simulate Journal Data
You can use another PC with a serial port to simulate the POS.  Typically you use a female to female NULL MODEM or cable to connect from the "POS" PC to the PC with EJournal™.  You can build up the equivalent cable using gender changes and NULL MODEM adapters as necessary.

Then down load the file, "raceway2.txt" by clicking on the image link to the right and saving the file to your "POS" PC. Use Hyperterminal to "Transfer, Text" and send the file to the EJournal™ PC.

Step
Five
Try with Your POS, Buy or Build the Required Cable.
On some POS system, you can disconnect your printer and connect to the PC running EJournal™. You may DB9 cable, appropriate gender changers and a NULL MODEM adapter.
 
If you are handy, you can build a splitter cable. From the POS to the printer connect all wires. To the EJournal™ you need to make only two connections. You need to connect ground. This is pin 7 on a DB25 serial port and pin 5 on a DB9 serial port. You need to connect the TX line from the "POS" to the RX line on the EJournal™ PC. On a DB9 TX is pin 3. On a DB25TX is usually pin 2 but you should also try pin 3 if the connector is non standard.
