What is a print server?
Networked printing typically accounts for
more than half of all network activity. It is neither

a general file server and cause the entire network to slow
A dedicated PC could ease the burden on
the file server but this is a costly and complex solution.
A network print server is a dedicated
server that connects a printer to a network. It enables
users to print independently of the file server or a

same print server can be used even when the printers are
changed or upgraded. Also, you can connect up to 3 printers
to one print server.

Logical Printing Concept (LPC)
Axis print servers can be configured to alter print data
to get the desired results from any type of printer e.g.
changing character sets to suit a particular printer,
manipulating strings before and after print data, and
providing ASCII to Postscript conversion.
Axis print servers support virtually every
network operating system and 28 protocols.
Axis print servers work with printers and copiers
from e.g. HP, Epson, Canon, Ricoh, IBM, Lexmark, Xerox,
Brother, OKI, Sharp, Kyocera, Minolta
AXIS ThinWizard is a device management tool
allowing multiple Axis products to be managed in groups
using a standard Web browser.
- AXIS AddPrinter offers an easy network
printer installation process.
FLASH-upgrade enables administrators to
download and "flash" their Axis servers with new
firmware upgrades over the Internet.
Troubleshooting report - all information
regarding print servers can be found in one single

Can you network an inkjet printer with Axis print
Yes, as long as the printer has a network printer
Logical Printing Concept (LPC) is available in Axis'
entire range of print servers, except for the AXIS
Note: LPC can not be used with the NetWare protocol
in print servers supporting NetWare Directory Services (NDS).
