Self-signed certificate for ePOS printers

ePos printers are designed specifically to work with your Point of Sale system, which sends the tickets directly to the printer.

Some models don’t require an IoT box, but the connection between your web browser and the printer may require a secure connection with the HTTPS protocol. If so, a self-signed certificate is necessary to use your printer.

  • The printer automatically prints the IP address during startup.

  • We recommend assigning a fixed IP address to the printer from the network router.

Go to Authentication ‣ Certificate List and create a new Self-Signed Certificate.

  • Common Name: the IP address of the ePos Printer, for example, 192.168.1.25

  • Validity Period: 10

Create and reboot the printer, go to Security ‣ SSL/TLS, and check if Selfsigned Certificate is selected.

Export the Self-signed certificate

To avoid having to accept the self-signed certificate several times, you can export it and then import it to your web browser or mobile device.

To do so, access your ePOS printer’s settings with your web browser by navigating to its IP address, for example, https://192.168.1.25. Then, accept the self-signed certificate.
