What kind of wireless are you talking about. A purchased deal that has that range or 802.11b? 802.11b has a max range of about 300-500 feet. Then also security would be an issue. How secure will this be? 128 bit encryption or more? Can any ol' Joe Schmo hook up to this with a wireless NIC? Wireless is cool, but the technology is so new that most people don't know how to secure it for a corporate network. Check out this article (http://www.extremetech.com/article/0,3396,s%253D1024%2526a%253D13880,00.asp ) for more information. As far as remote printing goes, we do that over our corporate wired network over hundreds of miles away. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Monday, December 10, 2001 12:56 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Remote Printing via Wireless This is a multipart message in MIME format. -- [ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ] I need to send printouts from my dispatching software on a 400 to five remote locations ( fire houses.) I am entertaining three proposals to address the connectivity issue. On of the proposals is to do this using wireless. I like the concept because of the ongoing costs. As I understand this implementation, I can configure the remote printers with a specified outque name and static IP address. When the application sends a printout it will be directed to a specific outque name (the software app handles based upon data entered.) The data would be passed to the NT network and routed via wireless based upon the IP address established in the printer configuration on the 400. The os is V4R3 but I will be upgrading to V4R5. The furthest remote location is 2.5 miles. Is there any reason I can't configure a printer this way? Any suggestions on a low end laser printer will work well with V4R3? Any experience with wireless printing over this type of distance? Sergeant John P.
