Print2Lan is a discontinued product. The replacement product for Print2Lan is the

solves all the printing problems associated with IBM AS/400 systems in a TCP/IP
environment by supporting the TelNet TN5250E protocol. Print2Lan attaches
directly to a LAN and can distribute print jobs to up to 7 LAN based

Print2Lan allows the LAN Printers to
be configured as "Devices" on the AS/400 with normal Out
Queues. This gives you optimal control of file
spooling printer status (page range, out of paper, offline etc.). Print2Lan provides all LAN attached Printers with the same reliable, full
function AS/400 printing support as a direct Twinax-attached 5250 printer.
Print2Lan can "Drive"
up to 7 LAN Printers (1 Printer can be directly attached to the onboard Parallel
Port) allowing full printing control using enhanced TelNet TN5250E protocol over
TCP/IP. TN5250E enables real-time reporting of Printer errors (such as paper
out) and allows a LAN Printer to be configured as an AS/400 Device.
An extensive list of pre-configured Printers Driver
for both Laser and Matrix printers
provides for an easy set-up
and configuration of Print2Lan. Users can easily customize any of the existing Printer Drivers or create
their own. Furthermore, since Print2Lan does the EBCDIC to ASCII
conversion, it frees the AS/400 or the Client PC from performing this resource
intensive task, allowing a faster first page out and overall increased speed.
Simple nstallation and configuration is done
via the Print2Lan's integrated Web Server.
can be accomplished on any LAN based PC equipped with a Web browser.
Print2Lan Application Diagram
The above picture shows a typical
installation. In this configuration, Print2Lan handles all AS/400 print jobs, performs the EBCDIC to ASCII conversion and sends the output to
the associated LAN Printer with the specified IP address. The printers can be
installed anywhere on the LAN and they can either be connected to a PC or directly
attached to the LAN via standard TCP/IP Print Server or built-in Ethernet
In the above
PRT01 is directly attached to the Print2Lan onboard
PRT02 is connected to a PC in a remote location (via Router
PRT03 to PRT06 are directly attached to the Ethernet LAN via standard
TCP/IP Print Servers
PRT07 is directly connected to a
PC's Parallel or Serial Port
