I had to call my merchant account to access the COMM menu of the omni to add the prefix *99, ....then change the baud rate.
just an fyi, hope it helps some.
I did call my merchant company, Patrick at Midwest Transaction Group (888-599-2209 shameless plug), who walked me through adding the... *99, - that's: star nine nine comma as a prefix to dialing out for communication.
I can't believe they got my Trans 330 to work after so many years, I think I've had it 15yrs (when told by others it's too old to work in these 'new' times)
Thanks Ooma, trim81 and Patrick,
I believe CC terminals intentionally use what by most standards is a very old and slow transfer rate protocol because the handshaking required is very minimal. The key advantage here is how fast they can negotiate a connection and it eliminates the need to test and equalize the analog frequency response of the line. They can connect, exchange the minimal data required, and hang up again before newer high-speed protocols can even negotiate a connection.jthphoto wrote:I can't believe they got my Trans 330 to work after so many years, I think I've had it 15yrs (when told by others it's too old to work in these 'new' times)
I think the protocol spec requirements of the phone line are even lower than for a fax.
