Just had an enquiry from a customer who is expanding - they are opening a larger kitchen for take away orders. But it's in a different building, which is '500 yards away' apparently. There is one touchpoint terminal in the existing building, and intention is just a kitchen printer at the kitchen side. There's no way to get a cable/fibre between them, and no line of sight for a possible wireless link. They do plan to have broadband installed into both locations, so what is the best way to tackle this?
1) IP printing and port forwarding publicly over the internet (think I read a thread on here ages ago where someone tried that with limited success)?
2) VPN between the two broadband connections?
3) Some other method??
Is there an issue with latency when routing IP printers via the internet/vpn? If so, can the timeouts be reconfigured in TouchPoint?
