I've got a client who have suffered one problem after another with a Canon printer/copier since purchasing it 3 months ago.

It's only shared between two PCs running Vista Business and the latest glich is they can print A3/A4 from one PC, but only in A4 from the other.

I've connected remotely to this PC and it is showing as being offline, with no option to go online.

To a network switch. Network consists of 2 Vista pcs, HP printer, the canon and a firewall/router.

The printer is offline can mean two things.

1. the printer is power off

or

2. the ip address of the printer is blocked

Check in windows firewall or other third party's firewall is blocking the internal ip address of the canon  printer

If I connect remotely to the other PC the Canon is showing as Ready so let me see if I can ping the printer from the problem and Norton Internet Security 2010 isn't blocking it.

I'm trying to change to Canon from a WSD port to 192,168.0.200, but Add a Port is greyed out although I am logged on using an account with admin rights.

Then, find the ip address of the canon pirnter from the working pc.

Then, in the problem pc -> Create a New Port for the printer ->Standard IP Port and check whether you should be able to print.

Do you have the printer driver?

If yes, delete the printer and add a new pinter using local connection ->  Create a New Port for the printer ->Standard IP Port and check whether you should be able to print.
