OKI MC160 n

I have installed mc160n Oki printer on windows 2003 32 bit server then shared this printer on the network. There are some client pc's that are not printing on this printer, some can print. I have used cleanspl from windows 2003 resource kit, to remove the printers on this server, then readded them again. Initially tested installing this network oki printer on two client pc it worked but then succeeding printing jobs failed, it's not even giving any error message, when you try to print nothing happens but suprisingly printing a test page work on these pc's. All other printers installed on the server work well no issues only this OKI printer. Please advise.

are you sharing the printer via the server and the clients connecting to it via the share ? (you should),
or are you printing directly to it via IP address ?

Hi PsychoFelix,

It is shared via server and clients conect to the share. However, printing a test page works on these clients.

I have resolved the issue by installing the printer as a local printer using standard tcpip port (I.P. Address), on every client workstation.
