Im trying to resolve an issue printing to a Oki 320 from a Unix based software , this system is using a IOLAN+ Serial server to connect to the printer, the main doubt I have is if the cable from one of the ports in IOLAN must be conected directly to the printer in question , or Could it be coneccted to the LAN, the IOLAN+ responds to an IP Adrees it has assigned.

    Accepted Solution

    The cable from the printer may have an RJ45 connector at one end, but it doesn't mean it can be plugged into a hub or switch - The IOLAN converts the printers serial communications into Ethernet packets

    See the second diagram at for an example

    As your product is an IOLAN+, you can find the documentation at
