The basic configuration process involves the IPC app, the payment terminal (device) and the Point of Sale Administration application. You must configure them all to work together.
We recommend that you integrate the IPC service with the back office admin application. Alternatively, you can use your back office admin application
Access the IPC on port 7080 by default. If you want to change this default 7080 port, you can use a start server script
Never copy a configured IPC from one platform to another.
IPC must be online during the configuration process.
These steps must be completed, whether you use our provided back office admin application or your own:
