ELP is pretty much platform and application independent. ELP supports these operating systems:
|Linux, HP-UX, VMS|
|Solaris, AIX, AS/400||
Solaris, AIX and Linux are similar. IBM iSeries and AS/400 will require software from a third party.
|External print re-router||
The AP-ELP external appliance just fits one hand and drivers one printer LAN2LAN or optional LAN2USB also. It runs on a hardened Linux-based operating system and is administrated through its built-in WEB interface.
If you want to install ELP in MS Windows, and the host system can't send the data streams directly to a Windows queue, ELP includes a license free software to emulate a printer on the PC (Standard TCP/IP communication), or Filesender monitors an indefinite amount of folders for incoming data streams. At the end all jobs will be placed in a MS Windows printing queue for processing.
ELP process PCL5 based data streams, but offers a complete set of Emulations, to convert most printer and plotter languages into the PCL5 format, which is compatible to most Laser printers, digital copier (MFP) and Inkjets. See more here.
