I-O Print Servers,
Print Server Gateways and SCS Print Server Software provide full-function
printing for network attached printers connected to IBM Power8, Power7, iSeries
AS/400 i5 or zSeries S/390 zSeries printing over an Ethernet network, as well as printing from Windows, Unix
and other IP platforms..
The various models support from 1 to 10 printers and feature I-O's field-proven IBM printer emulations. Combined, these unique characteristics enable users to share printer resources even when several different operating systems are in use.
Reliable, Full-Function AS/400 & Mainframe LAN Printing
In addition to operating as an Ethernet
LAN print server, the I-O print servers support AS/400 - iSeries and IBM
Mainframe printing over TCP/IP, SNA (APPC), and AnyNet (SNA
encapsulated in TCP/IP). Using any one of these protocols, the allows the LAN attached printer to offer the same reliable,
full-function IBM host printing support as a direct system-attached
5250/3270 printer. These protocols also offer users one step set-up
(auto-configuration) as well.
Full Print Queue Control
These print servers offer the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and control found with traditional direct attached Twinax/Coax printers. With the 5430e Print Server your printer is configured as a true "Device" printer and not a "Remote Out Queue Printer". Your IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of "Remote Out Queue" LAN printing. They provide bi-directional communication between the printer and the IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.
Some of the print queue features you will get back are:
