Title: About establishing communications

Description: Details on how to establish communications with your MS-850.

Issue: How to establish host communications with your MS-850, industrial scanner.

Solution: To set up the host communications, from the ESP main menu:
 1. Select Serial Port and Configure from the pull-down menus.
 2. Make the port selection from Serial Port options COM 1 throught COM 8. (Usually COM 2 for desktop and COM 1 for laptops.)
 3. Click the Auto Baud button or select Auto Baud from Serial Port pull down menu.
 ESP will cycle through the various baud, etc. combinations until communications are established (look for the CONNECTED banner on your screen), you interrupt the search by clicking the Stop button, or the cycle is completed without connecting and a DISCONNECTED banner appears on your screen.
 Allow some time for the auto baud routine to test most of the combinations. You can watch this at the bottom of the dialog box. Once it has found it, it will change the host's settings to match the scanner.
 The default settings for the MS-850 scanner are 9600 baud, Even Parity, 7 Data Bits and 1 Stop Bits.
