I have two separate network segments, both segments use Linksys routers. Segment A feeds the router for segment B (separate/different IP schemes). One XP machine on segment B would like to use a networked/IP addressable printer on segment A. I am going to install a 2nd NIC into the XP machine on segment B and assign it a static IP address from segment A. Other than installing the printer driver with the appropriate printer IP on the XP machine is there anything else I will need to do?
The only needed access on segment A is just for the IP printer. Segment B is used for the internet, file sharing, VOIP, etc. for the XP machine. What other configuration will I have to do so XP doesn't try to use segment A for internet access etc. It seems like there would be some confusion within XP as to what IP/NIC it will use for what task.
