Network printer issues but adding local printer port works fine
Posted on 2011-02-24
Here's the issue. I have a print server with about 80 PCs connecting to it. Printers are installed by a login script. There have been about 5 people that have odd printing issues such as can't connect, will say the page has been printed but nothing ever prints, selects wrong tray, etc. The only way I have been able to fix this is removing the network printer and adding it as a local printer using the tcp/ip port. The server has the latest driver. Its been happening on both Windows 7 and XP machines. Its almost like there is a connection issue but its not wide spread enough to warrant that. Ideas?
