On the DP‑300 serial port which pins are used to communicate with my printer?

Some printer don't use all pins on the RS-232connector,  so bear in mind that pins 4 & 6 need tobe looped back in order for the DP-300 to 'see' the deviceattached on the Serial Port, and list it as 'online'. For list ofall pins and functions, see list below.
