I have a Linux server being installed. When attempting to connect the shared printers, we were unable to successfully ping from the Linux server to the printers. From a Windows 7 laptop or a MacBook, we WERE able to ping these printers. We've unplugged all of the printers, power cycled them, and now brought up just one of the printers. We can now ping from the Linux server to the printers, but the MacBook laptop and Windows laptop are no longer able to print the printers.
This seems like a network issue, but I've never seen anything like this. Ping responses work and then they don't work. They'll work from one computer, but not from another computer at the same time or immediately after. Does anyone have any suggestions on what else we can do to troubleshoot this?
