To communicate with the serial port, you must match the printer's serial port
settings to the PC or Host's serial port settings. You can change one side
or the other or both, but they must match.
To determine the current serial port settings, run the autosense
routine as described in the User Guide. Once the settings are determined,
you can use EPL2 to set Com port settings on printer.
