I have a network printer installed on Server '03 ans shared out. But certain machine could print to it before but now spools and returns the error in the printer queue.

Printer: HP PSC2500
Server: 2003
Client: XP

any ideas guys?

    Check the event viewer to see if there's a more detailed error that might give a hint to what the problem is.

    Do you get the same result if you print a test page directly on the print queue on the server?
    What print processor is used for that specific print queue?

    Hi, I restarted the server and it printed. Now that client prints fine, with no problems like before.

    Hopefully this fault wont come back but if it does I will add a comment.

    Thanks for your help guys!
