Re: Help needed on iPrint DNS setup (long)

Thanks Andy. I had Earthlink add a new CName and A record for and point it to one of my public IPs. Now I
need to add some rules for BM to let the right port traffic through
and get
my fileserver to recognize the address (hosts file I think) so the
manager can see it. Thanks again.
