Cash Drawer Warning 913 Message

Hello,
Eeverynow and then, when I open the registers first thing in the morning, I get this error: "Warning 913 - the cash drawer is not accessible. It may be locked by
another application. Do you wish to continue?".
I opened the OPOS program to check the config. Device Name: Multi_AP DeviceDesc: Y Cable Cash Drawer Port A (Parallel TM Printer) Service: PROGRA~1\OPOS\Epson2\SoDrw10.dll Version: 1.5.4
I find something rather odd. Under Commmunication Settings, LPT Port Setting is LPT1 and Port is being used by POSPrinter\TM-99IIIP. So I checked the POSPrinter LPT Port Setting and it is also using port LPT1.
Is that why the cash drawer giving me the error and won't open?
Thank you, Daniel

Do I really have to set the connections with 2 different ports? LPT1 and LPT2? I have 2 other stores and they are also sharing the connection LPT1 but they are not experiencing the problem.
Yep. The Share the OPOS printer is selected. Thanks for the suggestion.
