I-O 5755e Ethernet-in/-out IPDS Print Server
IPDS/SCS Printer Gateway
The I-O 5755e IPDS/SCS Printer Gateway is a high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out 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.
High Speed Printing
Attached to the LAN, the 5755e supports high-speed, high-performance printers. Without the bottleneck of a slow parallel port, the 5755e supports over 100 pages per minute. Whether printing from an IBM iSeries-AS/400 or a zSeries-S/390, fast printing can be obtained with laser printers supporting port 9100. In addition to the Ethernet connection, the 5755e has a parallel port to directly attach one printer (laser or dot-matrix).
Full Printing Control from IBM Host
The 5755e offers the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and control found with direct twinax/coax attached printers. With the 5755e, IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of LAN printing. The 5755e provides bi-directional communication between the printer and the IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.
Easy to Use
I-O's PrintControl utility software is included with every 5755e. Whether selecting TCP/IP or SNA, configuration is made easy through the use of a menu-based utility.

|High Speed Printing, 100+ ppm||Data conversion is accomplished at the 5755e and sent to the printer via the Ethernet LAN. The 5755e takes advantage of high-speed, high-preformance printers without the bottleneck of the parallel port.|
|Supports up to 3 Attached LAN Printers||Three laser printers can be configured as AFP/IPDS and/or SCS virtual printers.|
|AFP/IPDS & SCS Printing||IBM host printing to LAN attached printers can be accomplished easily in an Ethernet environment.|
|Full IBM Host Control of Print Jobs||The 5755e provides a bi-directional communication between the host and the printer, via port 9100 and PJL commands.|
|Remote Printing||The printers can be attached locally or remotely via a WAN or VPN network. Printers do not need to be next to the 5755e.|
|One Parallel Port||One laser or dot-matrix printer can be directly attached to the 5755e for IBM host to LAN printing jobs.|
|I-O's Award Winning Printer Emulations||All AFP/IPDS and SCS functions such as True Print Complete, AFP/IPDS and SCS Duplex, Page Offset, COR, Fonts, Barcode, are fully supported by the 5755e.|
