iSeries AS/400 &
zSeries Mainframe LAN Printing
PLEASE NOTE: The I-O Corporation 5430b, 5430e,
5431b, 5450e, 5730e and 5750e
no longer manufactured. The direct replacement
for the 5730e is the next generation I-O 5760e
iSeries/zSeries SCS Print Server Gateway .
Please click here to be
taken to the 5760e Print Server Gateway page.
I-O 5430e Print Server
is a single port, multi-protocol print server. It
provides full-function IBM Power8, Power7, iSeries
AS/400 i5 or zSeries S/390 zSeries printing over an Ethernet network, as well as printing from Windows, Unix
and other IP platforms..
The I-O 5430e attaches one parallel printer directly to
your 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.

your laser printers and MFPs,

see the 5765e IPDS
Print Server Gateway.
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.
If you are looking for a print server with these
capabilities that can support up to 3 printers, click here
for the I-O Corporation 5450e.
Reliable, Full-Function AS/400 & Mainframe LAN Printing
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.

Full Print Queue Control
The 5430e offers the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and
control found with traditional direct
attached Twinax/Coax printers. With the
5430e Print Server your printer is configured as a
true "Device" printer and not a "Remote Out Queue Printer". Your
IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of
"Remote Out Queue" LAN printing. The
5430e provides bi-directional communication between the printer and the
IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.
Some of the print queue features you will get back are:
Page Range Printing - Permits users to print select page
ranges from large documents and reports.
Forms Alignment Messages - Get the
forms alignment messages you are familiar with you need for precise
alignment of your pre-printed forms, something you do not get with
Remote Out Queue printing
Printer Error Reporting - Prevents loss of
IBM Host print
data by providing same level of print status reporting as a direct system attached Twinax
or coax printer.
True IBM iSeries AS/400 and S/390 zSeries Printer Emulations - Permits
full-function IBM Host printing on the attached LAN printer. 3812-01 (SCS) laser, 4214
matrix and 5224/25/56 matrix printer emulations.
No Host Print Transform - No need to waste valuable
processor cycles on EBCIDIC to ASCII translation. The 5450e /
5430e handles that all
with it's own embedded RISC processor.
Simultaneous Multi-Host Printing - Maximizes printer
utilization by supporting concurrent printing not only from the IBM
Hosts but from Windows, UNIX, etc
