USB Printer connected to Getway

Have an application where customer wishes to have an audit trail of events sent to a serial impact line printer. This is used as hard copy back up. Printer will be serial dot matrix connected via USB to the Gateway PC. I have done this in the past connected to a serial port of a PLC and send ASCII strings to the printer.
To duplicate this in Ignition, will I need the serial module from the Module Marketplace?

Yeah, that’s going to be your best option.

To toss a caveat (you probably already knew it, but for others playing along at home), there are two flavors of the serial module. One for gateway scoping and one for client scoping.
