Intermec label printers not working with my SonicPoints
Posted on 2013-01-17
Our label printers are setup on a unix server and they are connected to Cisco Aironet 1200 access points. However, they hang every now and then, and we are looking to eliminate wireless connectivity as a possible cause.
I have installed 3 Sonicwall SonicPoints specifically for the Intermec label printers. That way, there are no concerns about whether the accesspoints that the printers use, are getting overloaded.
The SonicPoints are managed on my SonicWall NSA2400 firewall. They are connected to the firewall, through port X4 (my LAN is on port X0). I am however unable to use the printers or even ping them, when I connect them to the SonicPoint APs.
I have connected computers to one of the SonicPoints, and they work just fine - connect to the internet and our shared network drives. Our computers are on a Windows 2008 domain.
