Castelle Intros LANpress 2000 USB Print Server

New release improves performance, adds modeling and rendering features By Dave Nagel
Castelle has introduced its new LANpress 2000 USB, a multi-protocol network print server. LANpress 2000 USB is a single-port print server allowing USB printers to be connected to and shared across a local area network. It will be available later this month.

LANpress 2000 USB allows USB printers to attach to the LAN and be shared by users in mixed environments, including Macintosh, Windows and Unix systems like Linux. Castelle says the print server also supports Novell networks. It supports up to three protocols, including TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and NetBEUI. And it allows users to print peer to peer or print to a queue on a client system. With AppleTalk, Mac users can also view and use the printer as if it were a regular Apple LaserWriter printer, according to the company. In addition, LANpress 2000 USB also allows users to print via the Internet using either Internet Printing Protocol or Internet Mail Printing.

The print server connects to the printer through a USB cable and to the network via a 10/100BaseT Ethernet port. A 9V power supply, included with the LANpress, provides power to the print server. LANpress 2000 USB is equipped with power and error LEDs. It also provides administrative features, available through the LANpress administration utility or through a Web browser. LANpress 2000 USB will be available April 15 for $165. For more information, visit
