5435e IPDS Print Servers
for i5, iSeries, AS/400 & Mainframe

An IPDS/SCS Print Server to Connect Printers, Copiers, and MFPs to IBM iSeries AS/400s & zSeries S/390 Systems and Provide Full Support for AFP/IPDS Printing

PLEASE NOTE:  All "dp", "e" and "km" models of I-O Corporation 5435, 5735 and 5755 IPDS Print Servers and Print Server Gateways are no longer manufactured.   The replacement for the 5435e, 5735e and 5755e is the next generation I-O Win10 Adaptio IPDS Print Server Gateway .  Please click here to be taken to the Win10 Adaptio IPDS Print Server Gateway page.


The I-O 5435e is a single port, multi-protocol print server that provides support for IPDS (Intelligent Printer Data Stream) and AFP (Advanced Function Printing) using IBM's over Ethernet networks from an IBM i5, AS/400 - iSeries or Mainframe - zSeries Host.

If you need IPDS and IBM Host connectivity for a printer that DOES NOT have a Parallel Port or need to connect more than 1 printer or MFP, or  please click on the following links for other I-O Corporation IPDS connectivity solutions:



  • Connects one PCL 5e compatible parallel laser printer

  • Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol

  • Also supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol

  • Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts

  • 10 / 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, auto sensing

  • Multiple Host support (Power9, Power8 and all iSeries AS/400, and z14, z13 and all zSeries S/390)

  • Multiple LAN protocols (TCP/IP, SNA, ANYNET)

  • Host printing via TCP/IP Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270e), SNA (APPC) or AnyNet

  • Simple, one step set-up (auto configuration) when using TN5250e or TN3270e

  • Host controlled printing, including error reporting, page range printing etc.

  • I-O's award winning IBM AFP/IPDS and SCS printer emulations

  • EBCDIC to ASCII conversion done by the 5435e, frees host resources and increases print speeds

The unique design of the I-O AFP/IPDS Print Server allows a single PCL 5e laser printer to appear to the host as two separate type printers (IPDS and SCS) at the same time. Multi-host capabilities allow up to ten IBM hosts to send SCS printing to a single printer.

In today?s expanding LAN environment, I-O?s easy-to-use PrintControlTM utility supports multiple I-O Print Servers. This powerful utility makes initial set up, administration, and updates a painless and simple task
