As one person suggested above, it is possible to share the printer between two machines. All you need to do is set it up as a TCP/IP printer and assign it an address (either through the DHCP server or by giving it a static IP address), then go into the two machines and add the printer as a network printer. When asked about the type of port to use, select Local TCP/IP port... and enter the IP address of the printer.
I recommend setting a reserved DHCP address through your router to insure that the printer keeps a constant address and to insure that the router does not accidentally try assigning the same address to something else and therefore cause an IP address conflict.
Changing TCP/IP settings
TCP/IP defines how your computer communicates with other computers.
To make it easier to manage TCP/IP settings, we recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP automatically assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your TCP/IP settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure TCP/IP settings, such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS). To enable DHCP or change other TCP/IP settings, follow these steps:
Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, typeadapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties.
The Network Connection Properties dialog box
To specify IPv4 IP address settings, do one of the following:
To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
To specify an IP address, click Use the following IP address, and then, in the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
To specify IPv6 IP address settings, do one of the following:
To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IPv6 address automatically, and then click OK.
To specify an IP address, click Use the following IPv6 address, and then, in the IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:
To get a DNS server address automatically using DHCP, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.
The Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)Properties dialog box
To change advanced DNS, WINS, and IP settings, click Advanced.
Follow these steps:
Press the "Operator Panel" button to print a Network Setup page.
Locate the entry labeled "UAA" or "Physcal Address."
Write down the 12-digit address. An example is "00:1A:2B:3C:4D:5E."
Set the IP Address
Insert your Lexmark drivers CD and select "View Documentation."
Select "Software and Utilites" and click "IP Setup Utility" to start the program.
Enter the physical address for the printer in the "Discover Print Servers" field and click "Discover."
Select the printer from the "Configure Print Servers" list and click "TCP/IP Settings."
Click "Suggest Address" if you'd like the utility to locate an available IP for you, or enter the IP of your choice in the "IP Address" field and click "OK.
Make sure your private IP address is statically set. Your public IP address is obtained from your ISP and is what other users will be connecting to. You can not manipulate your public IP address so if your ISP is running DHCP, it is very possible that your public address is changing. Also if you are frequently disconnecting your modem, it is possible your ISP is leasing you a new public IP address each time. So try to keep things as static as possible. As far as the battle net stuff.
Diablo, Warcraft II Battle.net Edition, and StarCraft: Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in Diablo II: Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games) Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only) Warcraft III: Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games) Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you've changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen) If you are still having problems after you open up the required ports, try opening 116(TCP) and 118(TCP). I don't really know if these ports are required or not. I have had people tell me that opening up those two ports have helped them connect to battle.net.
Hope that helps. For manipulating ports in your router I suggest consulting your user manual, or online FAQ. Save your router config before applying any changes, and always remember, opening up ports subjects you to different types of security threats so be aware that is a risk you are taking.
You are going to go to the tcp/ip settings and enter a permanent ip address.
If you access the internet you could always use the ip address you are getting from dhcp, just go to start-run and type cmd then at the command prompt type ipconfig and copy the ip, subnet, gw and dns to the tcp/ip settings.
