Serial Printer
Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page
If enabled, serial printer will disable timeouts to allow for long delays associated with paper loading.

The Serial Printer option is controlled through bit 7 of byte 0 of the first DWORD of the ConfigData entry
in the FTDIPORT.INF file. This is the same entry that contains the Baud rate table.

The first DWORD is shown in bold in the INF fragment below.


Please note that this entry is byte-reversed, so MSB the DWORD reads
3F 3F 00 01
and the least significant bit is Bit 0. When disabled (serial printer disabled), the DWORD would read 3F 3F 00 01. When enabled (serial printer enabled), the DWORD would read 3F 3F 00 81.

These values are held in the registry under this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\FTDIBUS\{Device VID, PID and serial number}\0000\Device Parameters\ConfigData
