I-O LANRPC Ethernet Connectivity for Twinax & Coax Printers
Ethernet Connectivity for Twinax or Coax System Printers
Finally...Seamless AS/400 to LAN Printing at an Economical Price
The I-O LAN RPC Print Server protects your investment in reliable legacy system printers when migrating to TCP/IP Ethernet. It allows twinax or coax IPDS, SCS, or SCS/DSC printers to be connected to an Ethernet network. Once connected through an I-O LAN RPC an IPDS twinax or IPDS coax system printer can be addressed via TCP/IP from an IBM AS/400 or 3270-type mainframe. The attached printer can be a laser, dot-matrix or line printer. The I-O LAN RPC will reliably communicate the IPDS data received over the TCP/IP Ethernet link to the attached twinax or coax cable.With an I-O LAN RPC a SCS twinax or SCS/DSC coax system printer becomes available to virtually any host on the Ethernet network. This includes AS/400, 3270-type mainframe, Unix, Windows 2000 and NT, and Novell host systems, as well as Windows 95/98 PCs. All host systems can simultaneously communicate with the I-O attached system printer. Line and matrix printers configured via AnyNet or SNA on an AS/400 offer page range printing support and posting of the FORM ALIGNMENT message. The latter is a particularly valuable feature when printing on pre-printed stationary such as checks and invoices.
With I-Os PrintControl Windows-based utility, the initial setup and configuration is a painless and straight forward task. Once an IP address has been assigned, administrators can easily configure even remote I-O print servers directly from their desktop.
|Investment Protection||Reliable and expensive legacy printers are given a new lease on life by connecting over Ethernet to their host.|
|One-Model Solution||The LAN RPC supports both twinax and coax hosts and printers (SCS, SCS/DSC or IPDS).|
|Auto-configuration||SNA and AnyNet protocols allow the AS/400 to automatically recognize twinax attached SCS printers.|
|PPR/PPD||AFP/IPDS printers are connected to the host via true TCP/IP protocol.|
|ASCII to SCS||SCS twinax or SCS/DSC coax printers can now serve as LAN printers.|
|PrintControl Utility||Simple LAN RPC configuration from a PC on a local or remote network.|
|10/100BaseT Auto-Sensing||Automatic adaption to your network speed requirements.|
|FLASH Memory||Convenient field-upgrades to take advantage of the latest enhancements.|
