I-O 5430 Multi-protocol Print Server

Multi-Protocol Print Server

Seamless AS/400 to LAN Printing at an Economical Price
The I-O 5430 is a single port, multi-protocol print server. It combines the functionality of a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet print server with reliable, full-function AS/400-to-LAN printing. It offers unparalleled AS/400 printing control using enhanced Telnet 5250 (TN5250e) over TCP/IP. The I-O 5430 allows LAN printing from Windows, Novell, OS/2, or Unix platforms, as well as natively from an IBM AS/400.

The I-O 5430 attaches one parallel printer directly to a 10 or 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, and supports multiple protocols including TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and NetBIOS. This support allows the I-O 5430 to be used with a variety of operating systems including Windows NT, 95, 98, Novell 3.x, 4.x, 5.x, OS/2, Unix, and OS/400. The I-O 5430 also supports one IBM printer session featuring 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.

In addition to operating as an Ethernet LAN print server, the I-O 5430 supports AS/400 printing over TCP/IP (TN5250e), SNA (APPC), and AnyNet (SNA encapsulated in TCP/IP). Using any one of these protocols, the I-O 5430 allows the LAN attached printer to offer the same reliable, full-function AS/400 printing support as a direct twinax-attached 5250 printer. These protocols also offer users controlled host printing directly from the IBM AS/400. TN5250e adds simple, one step set-up (auto-configuration) as well.

The I-O 5430 can also speed up AS/400 printing. Since the AS/400 EBCDIC to ASCII data conversion is done by the I-O 5430 it frees the host or a client PC from performing this resource-intensive task. This means a faster first page out, and overall increased speed.

IBM host printing over EthernetAllows IBM host print jobs to be seamlessly printed over a LAN.
Enhanced Telnet 5250e & 3270eCommunicate with the IBM host using native TCP/IP.
Printer error reporting to the IBM hostPrevents loss of IBM host print data by providing same level of print status reporting as a system printer.
Page range printing from the IBM hostPermits users to print select page ranges from large documents and reports.
Auto configuration (One step setup)Installs in minutes using native TCP/IP avoiding complex software configurations.
Off-loading of data conversionEliminates unnecessary IBM host or PC overhead by converting EBCDIC data directly on the I-O 5430e.
True IBM printer emulationsPermits full-function IBM printing on the attached LAN printer.
Simultaneous, multi-host printing (TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, NetBEUI, SNA, AnyNet)Maximizes printer utilization by supporting concurrent printing not only from the IBM host but from Novell, Windows , UNIX, etc.
10BaseT and 100BaseTProtects print server investment when upgrading the LAN to 100 Mbps.
Auto configuration (One step setup)Installs in minutes by avoiding complex PC software configurations.
Powerful RISC processorTakes advantage of the LAN printer's maximum print speed even when processing IBM host jobs.
