    Configuring your machine for a network Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.000 Where the 0 is in the Subnet mask, there is no limit to communication at this part of the address. What this means in the above example is, we can communicate with any device that has an IP address that begins with 192.168.1.x.

    Appendix B Other ways to set the IP address (for advanced users and administrators) Using DHCP to configure the IP address The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address allocation. If you have a DHCP server on your network, the print server will automatically obtain its IP address from the DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.

    Appendix B BOOTP is an alternative to RARP that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and gateway. In order to use BOOTP to configure the IP address make sure that BOOTP is installed and running on your host computer (it should appear in the /etc/services file on your host as a real service; type man bootpd or refer to your system documentation for information).
