Notes Regarding Duplicate Printer Names on a Network
I
If you have more than one printer in the same zone and you choose a name for one 
printer that is already assigned to another, the second printer registers itself on the 
network with the number 1 appended to the name. For example, if you attempt to 
assign a printer the name Xerox and another printer in the zone already has the same 
name, the printer you are naming appears on the network as Xerox-1.
I
The added number is recalculated each time the printer is turned on. If you have more 
than one printer with the same name on the network, the printers’ names on the 
network depend on the order in which the printers are turned on. To avoid this 
confusion, it is recommended that you assign each printer on the network a unique 
name.
I
The added number is displayed in the Chooser, on the printer’s front panel, and on 
the Startup Page. On the Configuration Page, the name, without the characters @ : = *, 
and with the added number, appears in the EtherTalk area. The Printer Name under 
General Information is the name as it was set, not as it is displayed in the Chooser.
