Windows XP SP3
Static private IP 10.2020.50
Sharing an HP 1012 with the rest of the office.
The HP 1012 is configured with port DOT4_001 (Image 1).
Efforts to configure the port produce an error. (Image 2).
Computer A has no problems printing to the HP 1012.
All other XP computers in the office have no problems printing to HP 1012.
Computer does not utilize share. (Driver mismatch).
Instead computer utilizes direct mapping with generic HP PCL 6 drivers and Computer A's IP (10.2020.50) as port number.
Computer B successfully prints to sometimes.
I've been unable to pinpoint what causes the print functionality on Computer B to come and go. Suggestions?
