Did the IP's change?

You should:

A) Make sure the IP of the Printer is static and check the share name
B) Delete the old printers from the users settings and add it again using the share name as opposed to an IP

Hi,

I created a new object, installed the driver and that seemed to work.

Thank you very much for the help.
