    I have to configure one of my old print server that works with only with ARP to setup the IP address.

    My PC (and the network) IP address range is with subnet
    My Print server MAC address is : 00-05-5d-5a-04-54

    I want to assign the printer server IP address and I tried the following DOS command from my XP

    ARP -s 00-05-5d-5a-04-54

    The command works successful, but I can not ping from my PC to Print Server.

    I assume that I need to assign teh subnet also? If it is then how can I assign a subnet using ARP command?

    First, check if the assignment work - type simply arp to list devices. Check the flag. C means a Complete connection, which is what you want.

    What is the default gateway of your network? Do you have a firewall that might block the traffic? Can you print?
