XIRCOM INTRODUCES POCKET-SIZED, LOW-COST PRINT SERVER; ETHERNET PRINT SERVER ALLOWS PARALLEL PRINTER TO BE LOCATED ANYWHERE ON A NETWORK
 DALLAS (NETWORLD Booth 1772), Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Xircom (NASDAQ: XIRC) expanded Local Area Network (LAN) printer connectivity today with the introduction of the Pocket Ethernet Print Server. The new print server is the same size as Xircom's Pocket LAN Adapters and provides greater flexibility at a lower cost than other LAN printing solutions without sacrificing performance.
 Ideal for those networks that need to connect additional workgroup printers, the server is a cost-efficient solution which allows a parallel printer to be simply and easily connected anywhere on a network.
 The Pocket Ethernet Print Server supports a wide range of printers and plotters as well as PostScript and PCL languages, through a parallel connection. Installation and configuration software simplifies connection to the network, and flash memory allows for quick and easy software upgrades and products enhancements.
 "Shared printing is still one of the primary driving forces behind the steady increase in LAN installations," said Dirk Gates, president and chief executive officer of Xircom. "Previous print solutions have not provided the price/performance required by today's competitive market. What's important to LAN users is the most effective method of network printing -- a high-performance, low-cost device that allows the user to connect a printer anywhere on the network. That's what we are delivering with our Pocket Ethernet Print Server. Once again, Xircom has extended the convenience and ease of connectivity with a simple, elegant solution."
 The Pocket Ethernet Print Server is available for either thin Ethernet (Model PEPS-10B2) or twisted-pair Ethernet (Model PEPS-10BT) connections and supports Novell NetWare 286 and 386 network operating systems. Additional features include support for multiple servers and print queues; diagnostic LEDs for easy network troubleshooting; and encrypted passwords for network security.
 The Pocket Ethernet Print Server comes with a comprehensive two- year warranty including toll-free technical support, a high-speed bulletin board system and overnight shipment of replacement units. In addition, the server is covered under Xircom's free lifetime Customer Assurance Pledge (CAP) program. This allows users of any Xircom product to trade in their current model directly to Xircom and receive a 50 percent discount from the list price of their new purchase. The CAP program is included with every purchase of Xircom products in the United States.
 The Pocket Ethernet Print Server will be available in December of 1992 at a suggested U.S. retail price of $499.
