Redirecting MCR output when using MULTIPLE option

Applies To

Zebra RW Series Mobile Printers


"mcr.out"  is a setvar command that can be used to redirect the output of the MCR to a port other than the default serial port. Please note that in normal situations the MCR output is sent back to the source port that has issued the MCR command.  When using the MULTIPLE option, the printer resets to serial for output after the timeout value or a successful swipe.  In this instance, the "mcr."out" redirection can be used to maintain the MCR output for SRF or TCP communications.

! U1 setvar "mcr.out" "SRF"

! U1 setvar "mcr.out" "TCP"

! U1 setvar "mcr.out" "SER"
