guys i have this software i installed for a facility, when i connect this epson tm thermal printer to the server machine via usb, it prints perfectly but then i want to use the printer at the cashier point and so the usb must be connected at the cashiers end, and doesn't print, i know i have to add the port from the cashiers end to the server but i'm not doing it right....please help, Thanks

Your post is a little confusing to read ... Do you want to directly connect the USB printer at the cashier station OR do you want to USB connect it to the server and have it accessible from the cashier station?

OK, then you would install the drivers for the printer on the cashiers station. Then you would share the printer in the OS. (may have to enable printer sharing). Then you add a network printer on the server, pointing to the cashiers station.

ok thanks Sir, can u please the detailed about adding a network printer on the server, thats where i’m stucked
 
If u want the printer on the cashier then the cashier becomes your printer server, you must enable print and file sharing on cashier. Then anybody who needs access to this printer become print clients including your server box.
