Printer lost on Network
Posted on 2012-03-14
We have an HP LaserJet 1160 setup on the network as a cheque printer. After a planned power outage at the weekend I cant access the printer again. All I can assume is that on the reboot the printer assigned itself a new IP.
The port is pointing at 10.1.3.103 and this has always worked. Pinging that brings no replies.
I have done a ping of 10.1.3.255 followed by a arp -a command to bring up all the internal IP devices and 103 is not in the list.
if i run Advanced IP Scanner from Radmin, it does pick up a device called HP001B786723DA on IP 10.1.3.101 which has no webconfig page and I wonder if this might be it, but if I change the port to this and do a test print the print goes into the queue and after a minute says deleting and removes itself.
Is there any way I can find this printer?
