What is a network?

A network, in Printix, is defined by a collection of one or more Gateways (identified by their IP address and MAC address). A gateway should only be added to a network if routing is possible to the other computers/printers on that network.

  • A computer can be on multiple networks – one for each active network adapter (LAN and Wi-Fi).
  • A computer is considered to be on the network the gateway is part of.
  • A computer that uses a gateway that is not part of a network will appear as being on an Unknown network and a yellow dot is shown on the Printix Client icon
  • A computer (laptop and hybrid tablet like the Microsoft Surface 3 or later) will appear as being on an Unknown network when it is powered-on outside a registered network, for example at home or during travel.
