Do not connect the printer to your computer’s USB port until instructed.
Please contact your software provider to confirm if the use of our driver is required for their ticketing software. We recommend that the print driver is installed by either your system administrator or IT support staff.
Windows printer drivers will support all recent FGL printers. (NOTE: Old FGL printers may not support the use of printer drivers. FGL driver support was first introduced in 2000 on FGL22/42 printers.) The driver will allow you to communicate through driver dependent applications (Word, Excel, IE) and/or access the printer over a network. These drivers have very different operating modes. Please note that the only printer status information readily available with these drivers is whether or not the printer is ready to receive data. These drivers will not return status on any interface. While we do not recommend installing the printer drivers if you intend to communicate bi-directionally, we have developed some ways of communicating bi-directionally while using drivers.

FGL Drivers (contained in tls-boca-systems-driver-windows.exe)
This is the preferred driver for BOCA printers. This driver is only to be used with FGL mode printers. (NOTE: Old FGL printers may not support the use of FGL drivers. FGL driver support was first introduced in 2000 on FGL22/42 printers.)
BOCA PCL Drivers (contained in tls-boca-systems-driver-windows.exe)
This is a legacy driver for BOCA printers. This driver is only to be used with PCL mode printers. With the exception of the limited resident font and bar code choices, these drivers install and operate similarly to the FGL drivers. (NOTE: Prior to the release of the BOCA PCL drivers, many customers used HP LaserJet IIP drivers. However, the HP drivers have slightly different margin definitions and lack many of the features supported in the BOCA drivers - vendor defined page sizes, customer defined page sizes, etc.)
