Unable to Setup TCP/IP printer from a winxp sp3 machine
Posted on 2010-08-27
I am having problem trying to setup a a standard TCP/IP printer for 2 workstations. We are on a 2003 domain, the computers are on WinXP SP3, both are on the same subnet, including the printer i setup. I setup the printer and set a reservation on DHCP, on the same subnet where i have both computers im trying to setup exclusively on this printer. I tried setting up via adding printer and creating a TCP/IP port and it doesn't work. Tried couple of tcp/ip troubleshooting and both computer does return proper DNS and DHCP names and ip's.
What's weird is im unable to ping the computer vice versa. And obviously unable to ping the Printer. Another thing is, I was able to setup this printer on my own machine but im on a different subnet, though my network is setup to talk to all other network so it doesnt suprise me much. I am able to ping the Printer from my machine.
I am able to ping the PC's in question from my machine, and the PC's can ping my Machine, but not each other and not the printer. Remember, The printer, and the 2 PC's are on the same subnet, so i am not sure what's wrong.
The 2 PC's are able to connect to internet fine, shared folder, other network shared printer which is on the Directory, except this Printer i am trying to setup for them. The printer, and 2 PC's are attached to the same switch, and the ports they are connected are 100% member of the VLAn they suppose to belong to. They all have the 192.168.24.XX IP and subnet mask 255.255.255.0 mask.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
