Help building a local network... Problems with the printers
I am helping my friend setting a network in his new office,
He has 12 computers, with 4 Network printers.
1. One computer : server Win2000 server.
2. two computers: stations has WinXP on them.
3. the rest are stations with windows 98.
4. 2 printers Hp 4050N.
5. 2 Printers Brother 2010 N
No internet, Local network.
What is the best IP address to be optain in this network.
I have choose :
Gateway: ??? I am not using DHCP.
How could I put the IP address for these printers.
How could I control the printers: I am trying to use the jet admin, but I think they should have an IP address first....
What should we do.?
Thanx for your help.
Have you use Network printer before
Thanx for your replay ... but if the printer has a network card why doen't need a a LPT com.?

I would use xxx.xxx.xxx.100 - 199 for comps 200+ for printers. I would use 255 as the Server address.
This will not solve our problem.
