Support for impact printers from AS/400 over TCP/IP ethernet

  Support for impact printers from AS/400 over TCP/IP ethernet 

SNMPDRV Print Server

Custom Business Link provides a new low-cost solution to enable you to have control of your remote IP printer functions similar to a TWINAX printer.

Enables IBM AS/400 IP printers to have Page Range Printing and Printer Error Reporting capabilities over Ethernet back to the AS/400. Achieve printing control similar to TWINAX over your TCP/IP network. All of your printers with a parallel port can now be configured on your IBM AS/400 host as a device with a spool file. By using the SNMPDRV Print Server, your remote IP printers will now notify you with an AS/400 console message if they have a problem and cannot print.

The size of a pack of cigarettes, the SNMPDRV Print Server attaches directly to the printer's parallel port to notify the AS/400 about the IP printer's status. Eliminates the remote output queue method of printing to IP printers.

IBM's HPT (Host Print Transform) supports all brands of standard printers e.g. HP, Lexmark, IBM, EPSON, OKI, Genicom, Tally, Printek, etc.

Includes all printing technologies: dot matrix, laser, band, line matrix, etc.

The printer simply needs to have a parallel port.

The SNMPDRV Print Server works with IBMs new SNMP protocol to provide the status of the printer. The AS/400 must have IBM's OS/400 V4R3 or above with all PTF updates for SMNP and TCP/IP applied.
