In my POS code I periodically ping our terminal to see if it’s still there. Just for due diligence.
Our terminal is at a static ip so I know what to ping, but one size won’t fit all so I opened up our router page and showed the connected devices and out terminal’s host name is “-” or nada.
nslookup returns UnKnown for the terminal’s host name.
I would like to ping it by host name if possible. Or at least get the thing’s IP from a name.
It would be extra nifty if the terminal’s IP was sent back with the device paired webhook.
