we have about 12 printers on a print server. i was turning off unused protocols today (appletalk, netbios, etc.) and also turned off snmp. I noticed that 7 printers were "offline" even tho i could ping them. the only way i could get these back online was tu enable snmp.
can someone explain why this occured? i researched it here on EE and found that some people actually had to turn OFF snmp to print. we dont use snmp traps here nor do we monitor it, so why cant i disable it?
