IPDS/AFPDS Printing

IPDS/AFPDS Printing

Among other features, BENS OS4 supports printing via an IPDS protocol. The print data can be received from an AS400, IBM Mainframe, via Infoprint Manager or through a further emulation via Port 500x. AFP data are received via the LPR protocol.

The conversion to PCL is carried out via a native IPDS emulation. Various different properties are supported through AFP and IPDS, as for example black/white printing, color printing, borderless printing, print job offset, etc. The varying print resolutions are implemented automatically. There are comprehensive configuration possibilities for the different printer settings and job processes, such as tray mapping for input as well as output trays, print image offset and many more features.
