... off now to order a sexy gigabyte switch ...

I wouldn't bother with anything expensive. For just running tills together I normally use these;-

and find they work just fine.

i'd go with a separate switch for the epos stuff, tills, pc etc, use a different ip range for all your epos stuff, drop a link from this switch to the outgoing router for remote access. you can set an additional ip address on the pc network card if you are using a different internal ip range from the external.

Completely agree with you Chris. The problem is that Andy has no form of access to the router to set up what's needed.

On top of that, most standard home/business routers supplied by the ISP don't have the capability to run multiple ip address ranges etc.
