    Crazy idea for net printer

    I just had this mad idea spring to mind.

    In Lancs land we have a Cisco 3750 thingy (I call it a router - no idea if it is really-its supplied and maintained by CLEO -)

    Ports 1-10 are for curric use

    Ports 11-13 are for admin network

    curric net wil be something like 10.9.4.0/24
    admin will be 10.134.7/24

    Now Port 24 is the I/O port connected to the CLEO SDSL to Ethernet box.

    What do you think the chances are of sticking a little 4-port switch in the path and connecting up a networked photocopier so that it can be printed to from both networks?

    Non-starter?

    So what IP address would you give it ?

    If you give it one from the curric network then the admin network would need to know how to route to it.

    I don't know - but I think that all traffic (other than the local lan stuff) gets "routed" to my port 24.

    Did a tracert of 192.168.123.231 and it seems to route beyond me to to other 10.xxx.yyy.zzz devices before going into the request time out zone.

    So I was thinking that something like that address would do nicely - mm - lets see if I've a little AP lying around to try
