how to assign an IP address to a printer in MAC OS X

rvanvugt
OK, the title says it all; I need to assign an IP address to
my new Konica
2430 DL printer in order to get it working. How do I do
this? I already figured out what the IP address of the
printer probably is by printing the 'config page' of the
printer and using this address in the configuration, but it
did not work so far.
Your help
would be much appreciated from this nontechnical MAC
user.

Best regards,
Richard

    You need to set the printer's IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway to match your current network. Example if the MAC's Configuration is;
    192.168.0.20 (IP)
    255.255.255.0 (Subnet Mask)
    192.168.0.1 (Gateway)
    Then set your printer to an unused static IP of something like;
    192.168.0.101 (IP)
    255.255.255.0 (Subnet Mask)
    192.168.0.1 (Gateway)
    Also set one of your DNS addressess to the routers gateway (likely the same as the reported gateway on your MAC.
