    Printing from 2 seperate networks

    Hey Guys,

    We are currently tendering for a new client. One of their requests is, the ability to print to one MFC from 2 seperate networks. Apparently Kyoceras' have 2 nics' which gives it the ability to do so.

    Is this possible and how could this be achieved. For the sake of it, let's say they take a new CR4.

    Look forward to your thoughts.

    Yes, you are right. Kyocera definitely can do this. Extra network interface card is needed I have one customer that is sharing offices with another company. They are connecting two networks to one MFP. you will set up one network card to one network and the other network card to the other company's Network. Not sure if the sharps can do this. It's sometimes referred to dual Nic.

    If you have an open USB port you can have an extra network connection. Just buy an inexpensive USB print server and set it up. Something like this:

    Amazon.com: TP-LINK TL-PS310U Single USB2.0 port MFP Print and Storage server, supports 4-port USB hub extension, Firmware upgradable: Computers & Accessories

    =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    Re: Printing from 2 seperate networks

    If the 2 networks are using they same router/modem for their internet then you can print to the Sharp from both. You will have to manually enter the address on the other networks computers. Have done this with some of our clients. If they are two physically separate networks then it depends on if your Sharp copier has wireless capabilities then you can do wired and wireless and have them set to 2 different networks.Or at least that is the theory!!

    Good luck.

    PS That's assuming they have wireless setup within their office.

    If the Sharp machine has only one network port and no USB port you can use an old pc with 2 network cards. One card in network A and one card in network B. If you install a shared printer driver on this pc, both companies can print.
