We have two old system printers connected via a terminal server that we need to migrate to TCP/IP connections.
If anyone has experience with this, I would sure appreciate some advice.... Please respond to me off list and I'll
summarize for the list.
Here are the details:
1) OKIDATA Microline 395
We use our OKIDATA Microline 395 24 Pin Printer (http://www.okidata.com/mkt/html/nf/ML395Home.html) to print purchase orders and serials claims. It works great and has given us many years of trouble free service. OKIDATA sells a device that appears to give this printer TCP/IP capabilities (http://esales.okidata.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=76&Product_Id=1518)
Has anyone successfully used this type of device to move their OKIDATA Microline 395 off a terminal server so that it can run as a regular system printer available via an IP address? Have you had any trouble with the new configuration?
2) Digital LG01 Line Printer
We love our Digital LG01 Line Printer. It is super-fast and has given us many years of trouble-free service.
http://www.compaq.com/products/printers/options/line_matrix_lg_lg+_lgl+.html Does anyone know if it is possible to use a similar type of product to set this printer up with a TCP/IP connection? We would hate to loose this printer by moving off the terminal server.
