Suddenly print serving has stopped {SOLVED ??]



I am top posting to illustrate a problem. I fixed my print service but I
need help to know whether I have been scammed. The message below
appeared in my mailbox. University of Wisconsin seemed like an ok place
so I went along with them and installed their rpm.
cbi-paclage-config-122-10.i686.rpm

The first time I opened Firefox I got an error message saying
approximately: Foreign router behind your 2wire router , did I want to
fix it, I said yes. The result was that my print server was assigned a
new ip address. Which is the address assigned to:
ppp-70-251-194-186-santx.swbell.net. Since I get my DSL from swbell in
Texas that did not sound to strange but it put my print server on a
different LAN than my other machines. So to get print serving to work I
had to place an appropriate SERVERNAME in my client.conf file.

Have I been taken to the cleaners.. If so how do I change the ip address
back. I tried and so far I failed.. Any advice or help would be
appreciated.

Subject: Cooperative Bug Isolation for Fedora 12
Date: Wed, 18 Nov 2009 16:04:34 -0600

The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project (CBI) is now available for Fedora 
12.  CBI (http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/) is an ongoing research effort to 
find and fix bugs in the real world.  We distribute specially modified 
versions of popular open source software packages.  These special 
versions monitor their own behavior while they run, and report back how 
they work (or how they fail to work) in the hands of real users like 
you.  Even if you've never written a line of code in your life, you can 
help make things better for everyone simply by using our special 
bug-hunting packages.

We currently offer instrumented versions of Evolution, The GIMP, GNOME 
Panel, Gnumeric, Nautilus, Pidgin, Rhythmbox, and SPIM.  Download at 
<http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/>.  We support PackageManager, 
yum, apt, and many other RPM updater tools; see 
<http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/repo-config.html> for customized 
configuration help for any of our supported distributions and updater 
tools.  Or just download and install 
<http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/rpm/fedora-12-i386/RPMS.tools/cbi-package-config-12-10.i686.rpm> 
to automatically configure most popular RPM updaters to use the CBI 
repository.

It's that easy!  Tell your friends!  Tell your neighbors!  The more of 
you there are, the more bugs we can find.

We still offer CBI packages for earlier releases as well, going all the 
way back to Fedora 1.  When and if you decide to upgrade to Fedora 12, 
we'll be ready for you.  Until then, your participation remains valuable 
even on older distributions.
