    1. Hi Ameersafa

      Refer http://www.fingertec.com/customer/download/postsales/HUM-ikioskp-E.pdf at page 12 - 15 for more detail to enroll administrator.

      After enrolling an administrator, the main menu can only be accessed by the administrator.

    1. Hello Sir,

      For your information, the only way to remove the Administrator status from the terminal is by using the software (TCMS v2 or Ingress), if your terminal is connected with the TCP/IP. Kindly refer to the link below for guidance on how to clear the administrator privilege by using our software:

      TCMS V2 : http://tips.fingertec.com/tcmsv2/clearing-admin.pdf

      Ingress : http://www.fingertectips.com/2013/05/clearing-terminal-administrator.html


      In case you did not connect the device to the software, please contact your reseller, as they will help you to reset the administrator privilege at the terminal, because only authorized resellers have the authority to reset the administrator privilege at the terminal.


      Thank you.

    1. Hello Sir,

      Good day to you.

      Referring to your query, please note that for TA500 which is a colour screen model, you need to use Color Screen Model Function Demo in Biobridge SDK Demo.

      After connecting your device successfully, go to Color Screen Model Functions Demo > SSR_GetGeneralLog and you may view the transaction logs .Please refer this screenshot : http://prntscr.com/fd902q

      If you're using your own programming please make sure that you add "SSR_" prefix in front of the code.
      Kindly refer to the following link to download the updated version of VB.net sample code and sample project:

  9. Hi, Recently my organisation bought 2 units TA500 and going to buy another 21 units soon. All the terminals going install in 23 branch office using 2 Mbps streamyx and a few branch using 10 Mbps Unifi Lite. I tried to install the device to one nearest branch office and setting up router with port forwarding 4370. The problem is unable to connect the device from Head Office using TCMS V3 but able to connect trough Unifi in other branch office with out any problem. Is it to do with the TM ISP port 4370 is closed ? For your information, we are using No-IP to get the Hostname to update the dynamic IP.

    1. Hello Jason,

      Referring to your query, you may use port forwarding/DyDNS or VPN configuration in order to establish connection between the remote location device and the main HQ PC installed with the software. Kindly refer to the following image for guidance to set up the network (refer picture http://prntscr.com/nnyeo6)

      If you are having more than one device in the same location, you need to change the port number of the devices to port forward. Please make sure the port forwarding configuration is correct so the device can be pinged from the main PC where software is installed. If you want to change the default port setting on out FingerTec device, you can use and download the following tools.

  10. Hi Azmi,

    I managed to solved the problem due to the streamyx using private IP.
