Intermec 8625 printer

Hi all,

I'm hoping to get an answer here.

The 8625 barcode printer has a prompting mode, switched on by activating 
the bottom switch in a bank of switches. The printer is then supposed to 
write a prompt, so you can start programming the label formats.

I seem to remember that the printer expects a CTRL+H sequence to be 
reset/restarted, but nothing happens.

Can any of you remember the settings for the terminal (I do know about 
9600,7,1,even) ? I'm not sure on which terminal the printer expects to 
write to. VT100 ? ANSI? ? And how about flow control?

Any help would be appreciated



PS The printer is to be used for museum purposes, and as usual, the 
museum has no money to spend :-(
