<some good stuff about credit card validation>
How does it all fit together ? The ordinary webserver gets the number, the
terminal sticks into this machine over serial cable and the terminal has a
/ dedicated line to the the bank or to a different entity which ultimately
it to the bank ? Is that the right picture ? Is the terminal strictly
i.e. talk directly to the bank/entity through modem direct from webserver.
This APACS30 stuff for instance, is there a public spec for it. Is it the
to be used to talk to the terminal which then does something completely
to communicate with the bank/entity.
Just trying to get a picture here, theoretically could this apacs support be
added to that ccvs program mentioned earlier (certification issues ignored
for the moment) and communicate with .ie banks.
For the ordinary small mickey mouse operation how does an Irish online
handle credit card stuff right now. So many questions, so little clue.
