Hi,

Our office was piggybacking off a network owned by another company in the same building. We just got our own DSL connection today and have changed our workstation IP's from 10.1.1.x to 192.168.1.x and switched off DHCP on the new router to avoid screwing their network.

Everything has gone great, though we are sharing a printer with the other company, which cannot be accessed anymore as it is on the other network, and within a domain (we are just a workgroup). We were able to print to this printer previously, even though we were a workgroup.

Is their an easy way to send print jobs to this printer, or should I get another network card in the XP Pro "server" and configure it to the old settings, and use it as a print server??

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out with this!

Having your own equipment in your own company is not only good advice but it is also more legal as far as the IRS is concerned.

Long story...

Basically, the two companies are part-owned by the same guy. So it's not something that we're doing a dodgy on at all. It's just a matter of space and funds.

We sorted out the problem in the end by assigning a second IP address to the network card on our server and sharing it all out that way.

Cheers,
Luke
