    Dear All,

    I have a Roland SP540V that has been working fine with a windows XP computer. When I start the VersaWorks it asks me to insert the IP address. I have been reading your converations here but still cannot do it.
    I set the IP to, Mask: all good so far
    I Open the Printserver tool and hardly obtain the ip address of the printer
    When I open the VersaWorks and prompts to put in the IP ad IMG_2624.jpg IMG_2625.jpg IMG_2626.jpg dress no matter what I put in (either of the one above) it say "Device not found or status not acquired correctly from the Device".

    What am I doing wrong?
    I would be endlessly grateful since I get hopelessly mad when I do it:)

    I think this would be a Class C IP address, see below:
    IP address classes
    Class 1st Octet Decimal Range Default Subnet Mask
    A 1 – 126*
    B 128 – 191
    C 192 – 223
    D 224 – 239 Reserved for Multicasting

    Maybe try changing the subnet mask to

    I have the same machine.

    I had a tech friend that helped me when I was having troubles. I dont know the exact details but I know that I had a Dynamic IP that kept changing. We switched it to a Static IP and I have not had problems since.
    *knock on wood.

    What I have done in the past is to use a private network with a router to set up a connection with only the printer and my print computer. This was when I did not have time to deal with issues and just used this as a temp fix to get the job done.
