Product Overview

Main Features
  • Print Server
  • Single Port
The I-O 5430e is a single port, multi-protocol print server that combines Ethernet, IBM AS/400 - iSeries, and Mainframe printing over a LAN. The I-O 5430e 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 5430e to be used with a variety of operating systems including Windows, Novell, UNIX, OS/400, and OS/390. The I-O 5430e 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 5430e supports AS/400 - iSeries and IBM Mainframe printing over TCP/IP, SNA (APPC), and AnyNet (SNA encapsulated in TCP/IP). Using any one of these protocols, the I-O 5430e allows the LAN attached printer to offer the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing support as a direct system-attached 5250/3270 printer. These protocols also offer users one step set-up (auto-configuration) as well. The I-O 5430e can also speed up IBM Host printing. Since the IBM EBCDIC to ASCII data conversion is done by the I-O 5430e 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.
