I have a hom/business network with 1 server 3 pc's running dynamic ip off the server. 1 dedicated laser printer attached to the server via parallel port.
1 laptop all theu 10/100 ether switch.
Have just aquired an Imagistics fax.copier and network printer that needs to be setup with a static IP address.
Can I run both dynamic on the network that exists and add this Imagistics network printer using static and if so how do I set this up on all the pc's

thanks

you should not use the two same subnet IPs in a computer. otherwise, you will have a name resolution issues.

From what I can read, and correct me if I'm wrong, is that you want to use Dynamic IPs on your PCs and a static on your printer, correct?

If this is the case, then yes, it is completely possible. Set your server/router/whatever up as a DHCP server and your Dynamic machines will utilize it, while any PC's, printers, etc set with static will grab those. Be sure to set different ranges to avoid conflicts, i.e. set your DHCP range to 100-150 and your static devices as 10, 20, 30, etc. Or any other combination you want, as long as your statics are not in the Dynamic range.
