Manufacturer’s Description

The HP JetDirect EX Plus Ethernet print server is an external network interface for mixed-LAN environments and supports all major network operating systems for Ethernet networks. It turns an Hewlett-Packard parallel-port printer into a highly-effective network printer. This server has a high-speed HP Bi-Tronics IEEE 1284 compliant port, an RJ-45 port and a BNC thin coax cable port. Each printer requires a standard Centronics parallel printer cable.HP JetDirect servers eliminate the PC parallel port bottleneck. They let you connect HP network-ready printers and plotters directly to your network, to take advantage of full network speed. Print jobs are transferred in LAN-size packets at network speeds, thus maximizing print throughput.This model operates with the following network operating systems: Novell NetWare, Microsoft LAN Manager, Microsoft Windows 95 Networking, Microsoft Windows NT, Microsoft Windows for Workgroups, IBM LAN server, HP-UX, SunOS/Solaris, SCO UNIX, IBM AIX, Apple Ethertalk , Ipd , Artisoft LANtastic with PowerSuite and Novell NDS/NDPS. It is compatible with the DeskJet 870Cxi/870Cse and the LaserJet 5L-FS/5L-Xtra/6P/6MP.
