IP addresses and licencing

By meltvn ·
HI

My previous question was cut short because of space so I will ask some futher pointers here.

Is there any tool to be downloaded ore bought that can assist in resolving IP addresses? Is there any suggested IP ranges, class A ore B to use when setting up a local LAN? Are there any licensing regulations to connect computers to a local LAN printer?

Does any body know witch driver to use in WIN 2000 that will work with a Xerox XJ6 desk jet printer?.

Get the network monitor that is in the BackOffice 4.5 resource kit (supports promiscous mode). Use private IP networks for internal LANs 10, 172.16.X.X - 172.31.XX, 192.168.X.X as a good rule. Windows does not license printer connections in Windows 9X.

don't know about the printer driver.

1. How many clients are involved on your network?
2. Are you running a workgroup or domain?

Knowing the answers to the about 2 questions would really help me answer your questions on IP.

If you are running a NT enviroment then it's simple to do the IP part with scopes etc. If you are just running a small workgroup lan then all you really need to do is manually assign IP addresss. I'd try using 125.0.0.1 for the IP and 125.0.0.0 for the subnet mask. Class A addressing. The next PC on the LAN is 125.0.0.2 and so forth but make sure you use the same subnet mask.

Cheap and easy to do.

There are no printer licensing regulations you have to worry about and can't help with your driver problem.

The IP address question has been answered, so I'll pass on that one.

Your printer driver is not available (from normal Xerox channels).

See link: http://www.xerox.com/go/xrx/drivers_utilities/drivers_results.jsp

However, there is a strongpossibility that you could use another driver to "emulate" your current printer. I had to do that very thing with another Xerox printer. I had to install a HP emulation driver (for an HP II, or something). Call 1-800-821-2797, the "Team Xerox" support number, and press for a satisfactory answer. Keep going to the next person if the current one can't (or won't) help. I had to really dig to find someone to tell me about that HP emulation driver. Be persistent, and you'll find one.

To protect the Internet from detecting duplicate IP addresses, RFC 1918 has defined three classes of IP addressed for use on private LANs. 10.x.x.x mask 255.0.0.0; 172.16.x.x mask 255.240.0.0; 192.168.x.x mask 255.255.0.0. All Internet routers areset up to not forward packets coming from these IP addresses. Class A will give you fewer LANs with huge numbers of nodes. Class B will give you more LANs with less nodes. For what you want to do, either address range would probably suffice.

You do not need to license printer connections.

There is a tool that exist on the NT Resource Kit that may be of interest.
WINS is a server that would be helpful is resolving IP addresses.
The internet IP addresses that are set up by your ISP are set in a range A thru C
Networks that connect to the Interne must obtain an official network ID from the Internet Network Information Center to guarantee uniqueness of the IP network
The Internet community has defined address classes to accommodate networks of varying sizes.
Look for driver on the Manufacturers site to insure that you get the correct driver
