Can computers on other LAN networks, access a printer that is connected to a router through a switch.explanation is given below.
here is a sketch http://oi45.tinypic.com/34dpvn6.jpg
s1,s2,s3 3 switches are separated to 3 different networks in a LAN. (using subnettings )
let's say the printer on the s1 switch is connected to the switch through a pc and it is not a netowrk printer.(even if it is,it won't change anything here,I think(?) )
So my question is, We know that all 2pc and the printer are connected to that Router (thorugh s1 switch). Therefore all the device get the same IP address right?so how can the computers on s2 and s3 reconganize the printer in the s1 switch specifically if all the machines on the s1 has the same IP to out side netowrks? yes,printer will be shared so any other pc on diffrent netowrks can use that printer.
Do I need to use another router ofr the printer to give it a diffrent IP, in this case?
hope I was clear .
