      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      UPDATE on Upgrade   02/07/2017

      We were somewhat delayed on getting the upgrade done, but it looks like it will now be done in the next few days or possibly even later today.   There is one change coming with the new upgrade that may affect people when they log in. There will no longer be separate Usernames and Display Names. Your Display Name will now be the only name you have for the forum and, if you used your Username to log in, you will now need to use your Display Name. It is likely that everyone who visits after the upgrade will need to log in again, so please keep this in mind.   Update again - Feb 7 - We have completed the main part of the upgrade and we are working to tweak settings for the site.  It will probably take us a while, but we will eventually settle down to the way we want it.  In the meanwhile, your posts should be secure, but the look of the forum and some functions may change over time.

Terminology question

5 posts in this topic

What is the term for this:

 

\\Servername\share

 

I need to google for something like "what is the default [term] for an hp LJ 4000N on a workgroup?"

 

Because there is no way these people set this up beyond defaults.

If you're using JetDirect, you'd need to get the IP for it.

 

Tap Menu, then move to the right until you see INPUTS or CONFIGURATION.

 

One of those holds EDIT TCP/IP. Give the printer a static IP (configuring one octet at a time, tapping right after each one), then go to Start - Settings - Printers and make a new HP4000N. Hit "Create New Port" and say that it's a JetDirect port, put in the IP, name the port, and leave those settings at default.

 

If you're on XP, just make the new printer, hit Create New Port, then TCP/IP Port, then specify the IP. Boom, you're done.

 

I have to do this a lot at my office, and on four subnets too.

Thank you for the answer, which would be a very useful answer if I had made it more clear what I actually needed. What I actually need to do is set this printer up so that it pretends it is a local printer, for use with Remote Desktop Client.

 

The commandline in question is

 

net use lpt2: \\computername\printername

 

See, I have a remote user that connects to a Win2k server for various reasons (this was in place before WinXP Pro was out). Now she wants to be able to print to a printer which is on her LAN. According to these FAQs, you can't do it without tricking RDC into thinking it is a local printer. Apparently this is a security thing.
