The Axis host-to-LAN print servers provide a flexible and cost effective way to print to your LAN printers or digital copiers from your AS/400 or Mainframe system. They enable high-speed printing over Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Token Ring networks without the need for application changes, host-based conversion software or intermediate servers. In addition to support for environments such as NetWare, UNIX and Windows, the Axis host-to-LAN print servers deliver world-class support for IBM host system printing over TCP/IP and SNA. The flexibility to choose between multiple print methods including TN3270E and TN5250E, as well as SCS and IPDS data streams, makes them the ideal solution for the enterprise network.

Migrate Without Compromises

With simultaneous support for SNA and TCP/IP, Axis host-to-LAN print servers offer an excellent transition to TCP/IP-based networking. The same print server will work in both environments without compromising control and visibility of the network printer. True bi-directional transport protocols assure a tight and controlled flow of status and data in a direct path between the IBM host system and the printer. Users get the same functionality as from a traditional IBM printer connected over coax or twinax including features such as error recovery, exception notification, job control and end-of-job notification.

Free Host System Resources

The concept of distributed data conversion deliver great scalability and helps freeing host system resources for more critical tasks improving overall system throughput. Any matrix, laser and even some ink-jet printers may be used as well as digital copiers.

Take Full Advantage of your Digital Copier

Axis host-to-LAN print servers come with built in support for digital copiers, eliminating the need to modify IBM or UNIX host applications or install additional drivers. With support for finishing options such as stapling, hole punching and copying, any user on the network can enjoy the flexibility and power of a digital copier.

Easy to Use on Multiple Platforms

Axis host-to-LAN print servers support OS/400, OS/390, Windows NT, Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95/98/2000, OS/2, NetWare, UNIX and more. In addition, they are easy to set up and will auto-configure to the AS/400.
