The multi-protocol print server makes network connection easy through the use of a NWay connection which allows the print server to be used with either Ethernet or Fast Ethernet LAN. The multi-protocol print server is equipped with high-speed parallel port , and a NWay port, transmitting at either 10Mbps. This allows the print server to auto-sense the best connection speed to use on the network without the need for end-user configuration .
Supporting IP, IPX, NetBEUI and Apple EtherTalk protocols , along with Ethernet, or Fast Ethernet , this print server is ideal for shared printing in mixed-LAN environments
The parallel port supports HP PJL protocol for bi-directional network printer communication. This feature allows the print server to collect information about the status of the printer while printing .
A user-friendly configuration program that works with Windows 3.x, Windows 95 , Windows 98, and Windows NT makes it possible to set up the print server in minutes.
Large spool buffer let the print server safely handle multiple print requests. The print server provides outstanding performance over PC-based print server and PC parallel/serial connections. The print server’s compact size makes it possible to place it next to the printer , and allows more choices for printer placement on the network .
