My simple question:
One of our printers has changed it's static IP address on last 2 digits. How do I change it back either from server or client? (back to 172.xxx.xxx.xx).
Server: Server 2003
Client: XP Pro

No not by itself. I think someone changed it by mistake, and I don't know how.
I need guideline to change it back.

you will need to log into the printer's web interface.  bring up your browser, and navigate to the current IP of the printer.  there will be a way to change the IP settings there.  your printer should be set for a static IP...so you should probably verify it is not set to dynamic in those settings (otherwise it may change when the IP lease expires).  also, the static IP should not be in the range of IP's handed out by DHCP.

many of the printer web interfaces require a password to access administrator features.  if you don't know the password, you will need to contact the printer's manufacturer.  if there is no password, or it is the default password, you might consider changing it ... because if it was a static IP and someone changed it ... you don't want that someone to change it again.

depending on the prtr, you may need to browse thru the display menu options looking for network settings - see prtr manual

Typing the printer ip address in browser does not give any result, so I think the printers is configured from somewhere else.
Perhaps it will help if I look at the printers + spooler from server...(?) can I solve it from there? - Where do I find it the printers there at server?

how is the printer connected to the network?
 -  does it have a direct port for an ethernet cable?  if so, the the netwk config should be set on the prtr
 -  does it connect using a print server box?  if so, then you need to access the web appl for the print svr to change it, consult it's manual

Can you change it via ARP command?

> arp -s 157.55.85.212   00-aa-00-62-c6-09  .... Adds a static entry.

               ^newip^          ^mac address of printer

I'll have to end the thread, cause I will have to do more research first. I have been splitting the points.
