Additional Order screen

Postby greekhouseofpizza » Fri Sep 21, 2007 9:31 am

I'm thinking of adding another order screen/register to the front of the house. This will be located next to the existing machine. Is there a way to run another touch-screen off the same CPU running POS Pizza?

No,

Each station needs it's own computer. In a dual monitor system the mouse and keyboard are still shared, and since the touch-screen system uses the mouse this would not work.

You will need a second PC and an Ethernet card in that PC and your present PC. I would also not recommend using wireless to join the PCs together. This poses a security threat as well as it is slower than a wired network in most cases (except for wireless N).
