# POS Bridge stable

POS Bridge is an Android service that allows a POS application running on an external system such as an iPad or Windows PC to connect to the GoDaddy Poynt Smart Terminal using a local network connection (TCP port 55555) using Poynt iOS SDK (opens new window) or Windows SDK (opens new window).


Please keep in mind that POS Bridge is only used to establish connection between an App that is running on an external system and the GoDaddy Poynt device.

# Installation

POS Bridge can be downloaded and installed directly from the the Poynt Store.

  1. When POS Bridge application is launched, it will start showing its IP and port using Network Service Discovery (opens new window).

  2. You can use the CONNECT MANUALLY button to display the Smart Terminal's IP address and pairing code if the system does not support network service discovery.

Please keep in mind that the confirmation dialog has set timeout of 30 seconds. You must select an option as soon as you receive the dialog

  1. After the pairing request is confirmed, POS Bridge will display the name of the connected client.

POS Bridge will remain running in the background and does not need to be open to accept payment requests from the client. The device pairing can be easily terminated by clicking on the circled X button.
