Prathamesh - Let me suggest you "eat this elephant a byte at a time".

1. Take a PC with Hypterminal/Putty/Terraterm/<insert favorite terminal program here> and ensure you can RS-232 communicate to printer, then to scanner and finally to 1734-232ASC from the PC.

2. With all pieces communicating to the PC now try and hook the ASc and Printer or ASC and Scanner up.

3. Once you're into step 1 if you ahve questions about programming the 232ASC post back.
