Network Printing problem

I have an old Gestetner 3245 network printer that was previously setup and working on a windows 2003 box. We replaced the server with a different 2003 box, and now we are unable to get it setup again.

I can ping the IP, I can pull the web interface up in the browser, and I've downloaded a few different drivers from Gestetner's site for this printer and still no luck.

I'm pretty sure it was using RAW and 9100 when it was setup previously, but that's not working now.

If you are using RAW the default port is 10001.

Or, If you wich to use LPR the queue name is PORT1

Or if you wnat to be shure that all setting are correct, then install a software called "smart device monitor for client" make shure that you reboot the computer and then add a new printer port, then instead of choosing Standart TCP/IP, chose Smart device monitor and input the IP address of the machine or search it on the network and add the port. This is a sofware from the machine manufacturer that will create the exact port configuration for that machine.

jrtec, you are awesome.
I changed the port to 10001 and it worked perfectly. LPR worked also so thank you for both suggestions, extremely helpful since I couldn't find the answer anywhere else.
