How do I disable bi-directional communications.  



Printers using firmware x.10.x or later have bi-directional capabilities and can support the default setting. Refer to the configuration label or the LCD front panel to determine your firmware version. (For example 33.10.4 is a firmware version used in the XiIII printer where the 10 relates to the feature level.) For version 10 or later, leave bi-directional communication enabled. For all earlier versions you must disable bi-directional communications.


The bi-directional communication can be changed using a telnet session.
