Ethernet Connectivity Configuration

Required Infrastructure

Make sure to connect the devices running the POS application as well as the Verifone VX820 to the same network.

We strongly recommend to reserve a Static IP for each VX820 you connect our network. Make double sure to use unique IPs for each VX820 connected.

In doubt, involve your network administrator to help with the setup.

General Configuration

Make sure that the Verifone VX820 is correctly configured. Set the correct TCP/IP config and the correct listen port. To do this, simply follow these steps:

  1. Connect the VX820 to a power source
  2. Enter the "Engineering Menu" by pressing the [YELLOW]  and [1] keys at the same time and enter "12345678" as the password (We recommend to change the password, more info in FAQ) 
  3. Scroll down and enter the “Comms Setup” menu
  4. Select “Comm Type”
  5. Select the “TCPIP/eth” option and confirm by pressing the [GREEN] key
  6. Back in the “Comms Setup” menu, select “TCP/IP config”
  7. Select “TCP Mode”
  8. Select the “TCP Server” option and confirm by pressing the [GREEN] key

Then, set the correct listen port:

  1. Go back to the “Engineering menu” by repeatedly pressing the [RED] key
  2. Select “Connection Setup”
  3. Select “Listen Port”
  4. Enter (or verify) 16107 as the “Listen Port” and confirm by pressing the [GREEN] key. 

IP Configuration

Make sure to set the correct IP configuration to connect the Verifone VX820 to your network. To do this, simply follow these steps:

  1. Enter the “Comms Setup” menu
  2. Select “TCP/IP config”
  3. Select "IP Mode"
  4. Select "Static IP"
  5. Enter the static IP reserved for the Verifone VX820. To enter the "." character, double-press the "1" key. Press the [GREEN] key when done.
  6. Enter the Subnet Mask of your network setup. Press the [GREEN] key when done
  7. Enter the Gateway of your network setup. Press the [GREEN] key when done
  8. Enter 0.0.0.0 for the DNS Pri setting. Press the [GREEN] key when done
  9. Enter 0.0.0.0 for the DNS Sec setting. Press the [GREEN] key when done 

Application Configuration

In your POS system settings, add the IP address of the VX820 to send the transactions to the reader.
