-===== Step 1: program the scanner to accept both a prefix and suffix: ===== 
  
 +===== Preferred USB Serial Configuration =====
 +Most modern scanners support **USB-Serial**,​ sometimes called USB CDC Host. This can be used with the POS device manager and will work reliably without losing scans. ​ It will work with all versions of Remote Desktop. It is also the easiest to configure as it requires no preamble characters. Just select the Virtual COM port in System Five and you are done.
  
-==== A: Scan the Scan options Barcode ====+<note important>​This configuration of USB-Serial will require ​the POS Device Manager\\ 
 +Scanners manufactured prior to Dec 31, 2014 will not have this option</​note>​
  
 +Both System Five on Cloud and On-Prem customers should use USB-Serial with the Remote POS Device Manager. You no longer need the STX preamble for USB-Serial configurations. ​ {{ :​barcodescan:​symbol_ls2208.pdf | LS 2208 Using USB-Serial port}}
  
-{{faq:ls2208-1.jpg|}}+  1)  Configure the scanner by scanning the USB-CDC barcode. 
 +{{:faq:config-usb-cdc.jpg?400|}}
  
 +  2)  If successful, the scanner should reboot, and create a virtual serial port in the Windows Device manager.  ​
  
-==== BScan the Prefix ​Data Suffix Barcode and then scan the Enter Barcode ====+You may need to [[https://www.zebra.com/​us/​en/​support-downloads/​software/​drivers/​usb-cdc-driver.html|install CDC drivers]].

-===== Step 3: The following changes need to be made in System Five ===== +
- +
- +
-A) Open System Five by double clicking on the System Five icon. This should be somewhere on your desktop. +
- +
-B) In System Five, go to menu->​Setup Tools->​Setup Wizard. If near the top left of the screen you see "To advanced mode" written in blue, click on that. +
- +
-C) From the list of items select Point of Sale Devices->​Barcode reader. +
- +
-D) Click on the "Read Barcode Scanner"​ button. +
- +
-E) Scan any barcode (barcode on a product).+
  
-The preamble character has been set and the scanner is now functioning correctly. To verify that the scanner is functioning as programmed, simply scan a barcode with the DOS prompt up on your screen. You should see "​^B"​ followed by the barcode you scanned. If you do not see this then the preamble character for the scanner has not been configured correctly and you should repeat the above steps.+{{:​faq:​9208-3.jpg|}}
  
  
-----+===== Legacy Pre-Amble Validation at Command Prompt ===== 
 +If you have configured your scanner with an STX preamble character, follow the below steps to verify that the scanner is configured. 
 +  ​Click on the start menu and type "​command prompt"​ 
 +  ​Hit Enter to sell and open 
 +  ​Scan a barcode 
 +  - You should see "​^B"​ followed by the barcode you scanned. ​
