Look I am creating a system from a website to print (from a printer POS) purchase a ticket.
I'm using PHP, I know with PHP I can not do anything since it runs on the local server, then I resort to using ActiveX and using a dll (I have no idea even of how this works) which comes in the installation files or create a dll that connects with the port and then perform the action of sending to print the ticket.
In theory this should work, but I have no idea how make it works,
as summoned by ActiveX dll?
I have to create dll to only connect to port?
is the printer dll?
are both dlls (the printer's and create a port to connect to)?
