About 2 hours ago our lanier Multi-function Print Device stopped printing.  We use a Windows 2000 Server as a print server and I went there to see waht was going on.  Jobs were piling up but it wasn't printing.  Plenty of RAM and Hard disk space on the Server.  Any ideas?

OK, remove/delete the printer.  Re-install/share again.

Some clown changed the printer driver so that it was no longer using the correct IP address.  I will give the points to AndreDekolta because reinstalling the printer would have involved selecting the correct driver or re-entering the driver information and that would have solved the problem.
