I've had this work before but it heavily depends if the router offers a printserver. That way basically any printer that understands the data format for POS printers would be able to be connected. It is noteworthy, however, that this adds another point of failure into your system and, in my experience, makes the whole system less reliable.

As long as the router supports a printserver function via USB you can simply connect it and use the router's IP inside the Loyverse POS App. It might be necessary to add a port (:3030 for example) at the end of the IP address, again depending on your exact router.

Just in case, all Loyverse printers work with port 9100. So you would need add a port :9100 in the end of IP, if it's needed

Where do we need to specify the port? 

I tried to connect a USB printer to a router that supports printers but unfortunately I was unable to use the port.

It depends on your router.

      Hi there, I have seen T82 tested but I'm not sure if T82 and T82II are different/incompatible. I cannot return the printer once I buy it so I would like to make sure it works with IOS Loyverse on IPAD Air + 24V drawer. Thank all!

      Hello,
      Is there anyway to connect this printer by USB ? Why not as generic printer ?

      My Epson TM-M10
      It prints everything a bit too far to the left and leaves too much space on the right margin.
      I added the following ESC/POS command
      1B,61,01
      It kinda works because it centres all the text which is not really what I want.
      I prefer to move everything about 3-4mm to the right.
       
      Anyone know what ESC/POS command to use for that?
      My printer is set up as an other printer.
       
      PS. I have gone through every setting and adjusting the paper width but 48mm is the max setting I can use.
