SPS2200 LAN not working

Postby sidzz on Fri Dec 08, 2017 1:39 pm

I was setting up a 3 till system yesterday, tried to send plu's etc to other till and could not connect to till no.2. I swapped Cat 5 cables to make sure it wasn't that causing the issue.
Are there any settings to turn off lan port? The lights came on when cat 5 inserted, but it just wont connect to other tills at all.
any advice appreciated
Thanks

LAN COMMUNICATION ON THESE UNITS IS ROPEY AT BEST - I WILL NOT SELL THEM - ITS THAT BAD! ;R ;R ;R ;R

That said, the "fix" is to run cat 6 prebuilt patch leads to a gigabit switch - yes i know - definitely a sledgehammer to crack a nut - like i said - i wont sell these things linked.

Thank for the info.
I've currently got cat 5 cables connecting 4x sps2200 terminals (previously sps2000 terminals). At this site I sometimes get a problem with the IRC cash up not reflecting the amount in the drawers. Is this something you have come across that can be fixed by upgrading cables and switch?
Many Thanks in Advance

i have to say - i was very sceptical when i was told about the cat 6 and gigabit switch - but on the two occasions where ive upgraded, comms issues went away
