Oh we already use reservation, I was just curious as to what the majority does. We may have to switch to static ( long political story there ) and I believe reservation to be the better method from a troubleshooting standpoint. -----Original Message----- From: Sullivan, Glenn [mailto:GSullivan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Friday, October 15, 2004 11:16 AM To: windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [windows2000] Re: Poll Reservation. Static has no benefit over Reservations... it is even usually more difficult to figure out how to navigate the printer menu's to set it to static. Print a config page (if the MAC isn't written anywhere) and set up a reservation. Then set up a print queue with a new TCP/IP port to that address, and you are done.
