Is a gateway what I need?

Sep 22, 2010 8:21 AM

I am using CF8 in a windows environment.


I have a magentic stripe reader on the network at IP


When a badge is scanned, I want that information to automatically log in my SQL database. I think a Socket Gateway is what I want, so it will listen to the address in question, and allow me to capture and store the information upon a scan, but I cant find much information on the net as to how to go about this. I have gone through the exanples but apparently I am not smart enough to "get it". Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Only just seen this one. It should be straightforward. Is the setting in the configuration(cfg file) of your socket-gateway instance port=1070?
