The Hawking HPS1P 10/100M Internet Print Server is a powerful and convenient tool to connect your parallel printer to a 10/100M Network. Use the HPS1P instead of a dedicated computer to be the main contact point for all of your network printing requests. With the HPS1P and Internet Printing Protocol technology, printing over a WAN or the Internet becomes much easier. You can send a print job to a printer in another country just as easily as sending a print job to your home or office printer. IPP eliminates the need for fax communications between offices. Simply print an original document through the HPS1P's IPP capabilities and send it from one office to another. The print quality from IPP printing is equal to that of a document printed from your local office. With the HPS1P, your printer becomes a fully functional network print station.
