Printing to the wrong subnet???
Posted 12 September 2006 - 11:01 PM
A customer of mine has 2 lexmark printers - one on 2 different floors of their facility.
With no regular frequency, documents that are printed to printer A will go to printer B.
Printer A's IP address is 10.125.35.5 .
Printer B's IP address is 10.125.34.5 .
It's as if either the spooler has gone nuts, or maybe a bad switch or router on the network?
Server is running Windows 2003 Standard SP1. The printers are setup locally, and are direct IP prints.

The problem might be fixed in a sec with a different Ip for printer B/A
you may check the printer manual how to change its IP address
Ahh - but they are NOT the same - one is xxx.xxx.34.xxx, the other is xxx.xxx.35.xxx .

did the problem existed from the beginning or did it occur after some time working as it should
and if so ... did something change?
According to them, it was happening pretty regularly for period of 2 weeks about 2 months ago. Now it only happens intermittantly.
Nothing has changed. The IP addresses have been assigned for well over a year now. Nothing on their network infrastructure has been changed.
