Aloha,

The Telcom here in Honolulu has brought in FiberOptic lines in my 
neighborhood since the old copper was really bad speed. Cost was reduced 
and speed is now excellent.

I need a how-to for moving an APSfilter print server on my static IP 
lan  to  working with a DHCP network. The Telcom installed a PACE 
wireless and told me I can add as many  computers as I  need using a 
Netgear  Gigabit switch.

I have installed one  desktop on the switch and it has worked fine so far.

I never ised DHCP befor so any help would be appreciated.

/etc/rc.conf
-------------
lpd_enable="YES"
FreeBSD 8.*  hostname="mano.intra.net"
ifconfig-re0="192.168.1.50 netmask 255.255.255.0"
 
--------------
For desktop I used >
ifconfig-re0="DHCP" to replace IP address. I seems to find the network fine. Now I cant find any information about putting a print server on the lan.  
 
Thanks,
