Hei Guys,

i got one question. I wanna set my printers based on Ip Range with Kix.
I use the AD, where my users are set. So now their Printers are set over GPO.
But i wanna set them over Ip Ranges. So swichting the Place, the printer should be switched to the defined one of the range i'am choosing. Is there any command i can use?
Or how to write?

I am grateful for any response.

Lufas

ps. cant find anything with search function.

You could use the @IPADDRESS0 macro, check the contents and do what is needed based on the results. There are also various UDFs available in the UDF section that can check IP info.

Welcome KORG!

The InSubnet or IsInSubnet UDFs are well suited for this purpose.

If you don't want to roll your own, our Universal Login Script can control resources by AD Site, network subnet, and a dozen other methods. See the user manual here for complete info.

Thanks Mart,

im kind of a newbie in Kix. So can you give me maybe an exmaple code.

Would be so helpful. Otherwise you can link me a topic. I cant find anything, maybe i just use the wrong wording to serach for.

There are more ways than one to get what you need. It all depends on personal preference and your setup.
Below are two examples. The first is a quick and dirty solution that should work and the second is as Glenn suggested using the IsInSubnet() UDF.

Be careful. The code below is untested.

 Code:
Select
	Case Left(@IPADDRESS0, 11) = "192.168.  1"
		$rc = AddPrinterConnection( "\\server\PrinterForIPRange01")
	Case Left(@IPADDRESS0, 11) = "192.168.  2"
		$rc = AddPrinterConnection( "\\server\PrinterForIPRange02")
EndSelect


 Code:
Select
	Case IsInSubnet(@IPADDRESS0, "192.168.1.0", "255.255.255.0", 1) = "1"
		$rc = AddPrinterConnection("\\server\PrinterForIPRange01")
	Case IsInSubnet(@IPADDRESS0, "192.168.2.0", "255.255.255.0", 1) = "1"
		$rc = AddPrinterConnection("\\server\PrinterForIPRange02")
EndSelect

;              2.0 (completely rewritten code, removed all dependencies, added support for
;                   array of network IDs and subnet masks, added return options, fully

;
;              NETWORKID
;              Required string containing a networkid or a string/array of network ID/subnet mask

;              SUBNETMASK
;              Optional string containing a subnet mask (octets or CIDR) if the network ID is a

Did you get it to work ?

The script i have does map a printer on the TS server for me (admin) but not when a student logs on.

Just to be sure what is going on, can you put

 Code:
?@error
?@serror


directly after trying to add a printer?

Sure there are ways to elevate permissions to get it done but for how long will that work? Until the next update by MS? Slightly tweaking the permissions on the TS might be enough or maybe there is a different cause.
