[ Features | Specifications | Specification Sheet ]

The LAN CONNECT/5430 is an Ethernet Print Server for ASCII and AS/400 LAN Applications.

The LC 5430 is a single port, multi-protocol Ethernet print server that combines the functionality of an ASCII 10/100 Mbps print server with reliable, full function AS/400 LAN printing to a non-IBM printer. It offers unparalleled AS/400 printing control using enhanced Telnet 5250 (TN5250e) over TCP/IP. The LC 5430 allows LAN printing from Windows, Novell, OS/2, or Unix platforms as well as natively from LAN connected IBM AS/400 host.

The LC 5430 attaches one parallel printer directly to a 10 or 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, and supports multiple protocols including TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and NetBIOS. The LC 5430 may be used with a variety of operating systems including Windows NT, 95, 98, Novell 3.x, 4.x, 5.x, OS/2, Unix, and OS/400. The LC 5430 also supports one IBM printer session with field-proven IBM printer emulations. These unique characteristics enable the to sharing of printer resources when several different operating systems are in use.

In addition to being an ASCII Ethernet LAN print server, the LC 5430 supports AS/400 printing over TCP/IP (TN5250e), SNA (APPC), and AnyNet (SNA encapsu-lated in TCP/IP). Using any one of these protocols, the LC 5430 allows the LAN attached printer to offer the same reliable, full-function AS/400 printing support as a directly twinax-attached 5250 printer. These protocols provide controlled host printing directly from the IBM AS/400. TN5250e adds simple, one step set-up (auto-configuration) as well.

The LC 5430 can also speed up AS/400 printing since the AS/400 EBCDIC to ASCII data conversion is done by the LC 5430 it frees the host, or a client PC from performing this resource intensive task. This means a faster first page out, and overall increased speed.
