I-O Corporation IPDS Print Servers, Print Server Gateways and IPDS Server Software provide high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out IPDS connectivity to convert native IBM host print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed by a laser printer, digital copier of MFP anywhere on the corporate network.

If you only need SCS printer connectivity for your matrix, label or laser Printers and MFPs, click here to see I-O Corporation SCS Printer Connectivity Options.


  • Connects from 1 to 256 PCL 5e (or higher) compatible Ethernet capable laser printers or MFP devices, based on model of print server/gateway/software

  • Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol

  • Also supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol

  • High speed printing - Supports printers with up to 250 pages/minute per printer

  • Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts

  • 10 / 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, auto sensing

  • Multiple Host support (Power9, Power8 and all iSeries AS/400, and z14, z13 and all zSeries S/390)

  • Host printing via Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270E) and TCP/IP (PPR/PPD

  • Simple, one step set-up (auto configuration) when using TN5250e or TN3270e

  • Host controlled printing, including error reporting, page range printing etc.

  • I-O's award winning IBM AFP/IPDS and SCS printer emulations

  • Increases print speeds 

  • Easy to install and use, includes I-O's Configuration Utility software

High Speed Printing

Attached to a network, these solutions support high-speed, high performance PCL compatible network attached printers. They support printing speeds of up to 250 pages/min per printer. Whether printing from an IBM Power System (System i, iSeries, AS/400) or a zSeries - S/390, fast printing can be obtained with laser printers supporting port 9100.

Full Printing Control from IBM Host

They offer the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and control found with traditional direct attached Twinax/Coax printers. With these solutions, IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of "Remote Out Queue" LAN printing. They provide bi-directional communication between the printersand the IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.

High Speed Printing, up to 250 ppm

Data conversion is accomplished at the 5765e Gateway and sent to the printer via the Ethernet Network. The Adaptio Gateway takes advantage of high-speed, high-performance printers.

Supports up to 10 Network Attached Printers

Up to ten (10) printers can be configured as AFP/IPDS and/or SCS virtual printers.

AFP/IPDS & SCS Printing

IBM host printing to network attached printers. Laser Printers/Copiers/MFPs can be configured as AFP/IPDS or SCS Printers.  Dot-matrix printers are configured as SCS Printers.

Full IBM Host Control of Print Jobs

The 5765e Gateway 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 directly attached or physically next to the 5765e Gateway.

One USB Port

One laser or dot-matrix printer can be directly attached to the 5765e Gateway for IBM host print 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 5765e Gateway.
