he Ethernet IPDS Print Server
provides reliable AS/400 to LAN
printing. The Print Server converts
native AS/400 print jobs from
EBCDIC to ASCII, freeing the host
or client PCs from the often heavy
overload associated with printing.
The Print Server works via a
single network interface: choose
either 10BASE2 BNC or 10/100BASE-T RJ-45.
The Print Server acts as a
node in the local area network
with its own unique network
address. It receives data from
across the network in packets
and converts the packets to a
format that serial or parallel
printers can recognize.
When printing from ASCII
hosts (PC, UNIX), the Print Server
supports the following protocols:
T
• TCP/IP—Used by UNIX ,
NetWare , Windows NT , and
OS/2 .
• IPX™/SPX—Used by
NetWare.
• NetBIOS—Used by
Windows 3.x, Windows for
Workgroups, Windows NT,
and OS/2.
The Print Server can support
printing from several different
types of hosts at the same time.
This expands the capability of a
printer attached to a Print Server,
yet still provides the benefits of a
dedicated host-printer
relationship:
• In LAN printing, you may
have UNIX systems, Windows,
and PCs running OS/2, all
using various combinations of
NetWare and TCP/IP. All
systems can send their printed
data to a single Print Server.
®
®
®
®
®
• The Print Server can support
up to 10 different AS/400 hosts
for each printer (when using
TS5250e), greatly expanding
the number of hosts that can
use the printers attached to a
Print Server.
