Reserved IP address for network printer?

Postby kylehart » Mon Aug 18, 2014 9:40 pm

Do the standard church firewall/routers support this?

How would one do this?

Would I need to send the request (and perhaps instructions) to the stake tech spec to set this up? Or should a ward clerk have access?

Yes, that's what I'd recommend. The STS can log into tm.lds.org and it will show him the range of IPs that can be statically assigned. And someone needs to keep track of all the static assignments on the network.

I don't see ward clerks as being on the access list for tm.

Unless something has changed in the last couple of months, ward clerks do have at least read access to tm and can see the IP ranges.

It really doesn't matter whether a ward clerk can see the static IP ranges. This is clearly a job for the STS, because there has to be one central list of which static IP addresses are used by which devices. I suppose that once the STS has designated which IP address is to be used for a particular device, a technically competent ward clerk might set the IP for that device, but the list has to be centrally managed by the STS, or chaos could ensue.

As a branch clerk I can confirm that ward/branch clerks do have limited access to TM. But as aebrown has pointed out the static addresses available information provides little assistance to a ward/branch clerk since he does not know which static addresses have been assigned to other devices. The STS needs to be involved either directly or at least assign the address or there could be problems.
