Product Overview

Main Features
  • 1-port 10/100 BaseT Ethernet LAN Print Server for select IBM systems
The I-O 5755e IPDS/SCS Printer Gateway is a high speed Ethernet-in, ethernet-out AFP/IPDS - SCS gateway print server designed to convert native IBM host print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed by a laser printer on the LAN. Supporting up to three printers, the 5755e delivers IBM AFP/IPDS and SCS printing via TCP/IP, providing the control and printer feedback found in an IBM host environment


Connects up to three PCL 5e compatible ethernet capable laser printers

Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol

Also supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol

High speed printing - up to 300 pages per minute

Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts

10 / 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, auto sensing

Multiple Host support (AS/400 iSeries, Mainframe zSeries, Windows, Unix)

Multiple LAN protocols (SNA, TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, NetBIOS)

Host printing via Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270E), SNA (APPC) or AnyNet

Simple, one step set-up (auto configuration) when using TN5250e or TN3270e

Host controlled printing, including error reporting, page range printing etc.
