ExtremeZ-IP Print Server
Group Logic today announced an upgraded, stand-alone version of its software product. Expected to ship later this year, it allows customers to utilize ExtremeZ-IP Print Server 4.0 both in conjunction with and independently of its ExtremeZ-IP 4.0 File Server Product. The solution allows Mac and Windows clients to print via TCP/IP to printers and other PostScript devices. The stand-alone version brings support for Apple Remote Desktop, allowing automated distribution and installation of the ExtremeZ-IP Print Server Mac OS X client to the entire enterprise. It also supports multiple print queue management, sharing of Windows print servers to Macs, detailed logging of print jobs, Rendezvous support, and support of Apple LaserWriter and Adobe PS printers under Mac OS 9.
ExtremeZ-IP Print Server 4.0 provides compatibility with Mac OS 9 and seamless integration with the Mac OS X printing architecture. It enables users who operate both Mac OS X and Windows print servers to completely remove AppleTalk from their network. Mac clients spool PostScript print jobs using the TCP/IP protocol to printers and other devices managed by Windows 2003/2000/XP/NT servers. Print jobs are then delivered to printers and PostScript processing applications.
