If you want to display the product value in POS, just activate the developer mode... Click on the top right OpenERP screen, About OpenERP >> Activate Developer Mode. Start selling in PoS and scan your product, the EAN13 will be shown in the debug window.

How do i get my scanner to work with the pos. I have a standard usb scanner and is able to scan the barcode to any application, but the pos is doing nothing. From what i was able to read i need to setup some proxy or something. How do you do that? I need to add my pole display, cashdrawer and slip printer ass well. I read that proxy require client install of openerp, but how do i make client install connect to server?
