Problems trying to print in Unix.

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.

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
http://www.perle.com/products/IOLAN-STS-Terminal-Server.shtml for an example

As your product is an IOLAN+, you can find the documentation at http://www.perle.com/products/IOLAN+-Terminal-Server.shtml
