I don't recall ever seeing one - just reading the press releases in the
Apple II rags that were still around at the time ('88 or '89, IIRC). It
was billed mostly as printer sharing solution for those who couldn't
afford a network.

I believe PaceMark was bought by Okidata in the early 90's, so they
might be able to provide some insight.
