Host Print 3235

General Info

The I-O 3235 is an HP LaserJet compatible USB, Compact Flash, or DIMM that provides support for Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IBM's native Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) and SCS over Ethernet networks, from IBM System i5, iSeries, AS/400 or zSeries-S/390 hosts. 

Print jobs from Windows, Novell, OS/2 or Unix hosts may also be printed with the I-O 3235 installed. Features include the following:

  • Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using native IPDS protocol
  • Supports SCS (on select printers)
  • Compatible with HP Jetdirect enabled printers and HP Web Jetadmin
  • Host controlled printing and page range printing
  • I-O's award winning printer emulations
  • Conversion done by the I-O 3235, frees host resources and increases print speeds
  • Edge-to-edge printing (on select printers)
  • Customized input trays
  • Configuration via front panel or Web page

Host to LAN Printing

IPDS and SCS host printing and standard network printing can be accomplished in an Ethernet environment, eliminating the expense of a dedicated host AFP/IPDS or SCS printer.

Edge-to-Edge Printing

Host documents which require edge-to-edge printing, can be printed on select HP LaserJet printers.

Off Loading of Data Conversion

Increased speed is a result of converting EBCDIC data at the printer rather than at the host or PC.

Page Offset Functions

Flexible page positioning is provided without modifying the applications.

Configured Through Browser

Easy remote configuration is available through the printer's Web interface on select HP printers.
