ICS workgroup guidance

I have a client who has had to vacate their HQ, which housed their server infrastructure, IP PABX etc after the building is to be condemned.

Because we cant get internet connectivity suited to the organizations needs for many weeks I've had to setup a pseudo workgroup - a PC with Windows 10 using ICS connected to a 4G modem, and have everyone RDP to the site where we moved the servers to.

Everything has gone smoothly, but the large format digital copier/printers (DC/P's) that have to be on this site, have provided some hurdles.

Does anyone know:

Q1 What IP range the DHCP Server in ICS uses e.g. if the ICS host is   is the range everything between and 1.253 available.  Or does it issue addresses above 23 only?

Q2 Because I can't reserve the IP addresses I'd allocate to the DC/P's, and if I assign Static IP's, how do I ensure the IP's assigned to the Digital C/P's aren't conflicted?

Q3 Using the above would I best to make a larger IP pool by using a class A address pool and assigning a static IP to the the DC/P's high into the address pool to avoid conflicts?  Example: set the ICS device 2 and give the DC/P's say

I have only 2 sites with Workgroups, and my entire career has been Windows Domains and Linux.

Responses need only address the questions asked, if you're off topic best save your breath.
