I-O LANRPC Ethernet Connectivity for Twinax or Coax System Printers

I-O LAN RPC Reverse Protocol Converter

Finally...Seamless AS/400 to LAN Printing at an Economical Price

The I-O LANRPC 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.

LANRPC Diagram

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 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-O’s Windows-based configuration 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.

Features Benefits
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.
Configuration 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.
AnyNet and SNA Support Page Range Printing and form alignment messages for line and matrix printers.
Simultaneous, Multi-Protocol Printing Universal access to SCS and SCS/DSC system printers optimizes your printer investment.
