I-O 5735e IPDS Print Server Gateway
For IPDS Printing from IBM Power Systems, iSeries & zSeries

A Print Server Gateway to Connect Printers, Copiers, and MFPs to IBM iSeries AS/400s & zSeries S/390 Systems and Provide Full Support for IPDS Printing

PLEASE NOTE:  All "dp", "e" and "km" models of I-O Corporation 5435, 5735 and 5755 IPDS Print Servers and Print Server Gateways are no longer manufactured.   The replacement for the 5435e, 5735e and 5755e is the next generation I-O Win10 Adaptio IPDS Print Server Gateway .  Please click here to be taken to the Win10 Adaptio IPDS Print Server Gateway page.


The I-O 5735e IPDS/SCS Printer Gateway is a high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out IPDS/SCS gateway print server designed to enable IPDS Printing on network attached laser printers by converting native IBM host print jobs to PCL.  Supporting up to three printers, the 5755e delivers IBM IPDS printing and SCS printing over IP, providing the control and printer feedback found in an IBM host environment.

If you need IPDS printing from more than one printer, the Win10 IPDS Print Server Gateway may be a better solution.  It will support up to 20 network attached printers, copiers or MFPs. Click here and you will be taken to the Win1j0 IPDS Print Server Gateway page.


  • Connects three PCL 5e compatible Ethernet capable laser printers or MFP devices

  • Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol

  • Also supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol

  • High speed printing - over 100 pages per minute

  • 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)

  • Multiple LAN protocols (TCP/IP, SNA, ANYNET)

  • Host printing via TCP/IP Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270e), SNA (APPC) or AnyNet

  • 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 the LAN, the 5735e supports high-speed, high-performance printers. Without the bottleneck of a slow parallel port, the 5735e 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 5735e has a parallel port to directly attach one printer (laser or dot-matrix).

Full Printing Control from IBM Host

The 5735e offers the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and control found with direct Twinax/coax attached printers. With the 5735e, IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of LAN printing. The 5735e provides bi-directional communication between the printer and the IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.

Easy to Use

I-O's Configuration Utility software is included with every 5735e. Whether selecting TCP/IP or SNA, configuration is made easy through the use of a menu-based utility.

Features Benefits

High Speed Printing, 100+ ppm

Data conversion is accomplished at the 5735e and sent to the printer via the Ethernet LAN. The 5735e takes advantage of high-speed, high-performance 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 5735e 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 5735e.

One Parallel Port

One laser or dot-matrix printer can be directly attached to the 5735e 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 5735e.
