Planning for a printer network connection

You might want to create a separate network of printers with higher bandwidth connectivity. In this case, you must configure an additional network adapter on each InfoPrint Manager server system that controls printers on the independent printer network. Use this worksheet to assist in this configuration. For additional information about setting up a separate printer network, see “Using Multiple Network Adapter Cards” in the InfoPrint Manager for Windows: Procedures.

Subnet Mask A dotted-decimal number (for example, 255.255.255.0) indicating which part of the IP address identifies the network and which part identifies the system. Required for printer network participation.
