IPDS for Sharp Printers
IPDS & AFP Capability for Sharp Printers, Copiers and MFPs

A Network Appliance to Connect
Sharp Printers, Copiers, and MFPs to
IBM iSeries AS/400s & zSeries S/390 Systems and Provide Full
Support for IPDS Printing


The I-O Corporation Win10 Adaptio IPDS Print Server Gateway is a high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out IPDS/SCS gateway print server designed to convert native IBM host print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed by Sharp network attached Laser Printers, Copiers and MFPs The Winj10 Print Server Gateway can be initially ordered with support from 1 to 20 printers, and delivers IBM IPDS and SCS printing via IP, providing the control and printer feedback found in an IBM host environment.  When additional printer support is needed, it is simply upgraded via a new license code.



  • Connects from 1 to 20 PCL 5e (or higher) compatible Ethernet capable laser printers or MFP devices

  • Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol

  • Also supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol

  • High speed printing - Supports printers with up to 250 pages/minute per printer

  • Supports over 100 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)

  • Host printing via Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270E) and TCP/IP (PPR/PPD

  • 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 IPDS and SCS printer emulations

  • Increases print speeds 

  • Easy to install and configure using Remote Desktop

High Speed Printing

Attached to a network, the Win10 supports high-speed, high performance PCL compatible network attached printers. It supports printing up to 250 pages/min per printer. Whether printing from an IBM Power System (System i, iSeries, AS/400) or a zSeries - S/390, fast printing can be obtained with laser printers supporting port 9100. In addition to the Ethernet gateway connection, the Win10 Adaptio Gateway will also support one locally attached USB printer.

Full Printing Control from IBM Host

The Win10 offers the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and control found with traditional direct attached Twinax/Coax printers. With the Adaptio Gateway, IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of "Remote Out Queue" LAN printing. The Win10 Adaptio Gateway provides bi-directional communication between the printer and the IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.

Easy to Use

Simple configuration, management and upgrading using Remote Desktop.

High Speed Printing, up to 250 ppm

Data conversion is accomplished at the Win10 Adaptio IPDS Gateway and sent to the printer via the Ethernet Network. The Adaptio Gateway takes advantage of high-speed, high-performance printers.

Supports up to 10 Network Attached Printers

Up to twenty (20) printers can be configured as IPDS and/or SCS virtual printers.

IPDS & SCS Printing

IBM host printing to network attached printers. Laser Printers/Copiers/MFPs can be configured as IPDS or SCS Printers.  Dot-matrix printers are configured as SCS Printers.

Full IBM Host Control of Print Jobs

The Win10 Adaptio IPDS Gateway provides a bi-directional communication between the host and the printer, via port 9100 and PJL commands.

Remote Printing

The printers can be attached locally or remotely via a LAN, WAN or VPN network. Printers do not need to be directly attached or physically next to the Win10 Adaptio IPDS Gateway.

One USB Port

One laser or dot-matrix printer can be directly attached to the Win10 Adaptio IPDS Gateway for IBM host print jobs.

I-O's Award Winning Printer Emulations

All IPDS and SCS functions such as True Print Complete, IPDS and SCS Duplex, Page Offset, COR, Fonts, Barcode, are fully supported by the 5765e Gateway.
