I am having a problem setting up a xerox printer. We just moved offices, and now when I ping the printer, I get "Destination host unreachable". The port on the switch is green, and everything on the printer is running correctly with no error message.  What am I doing wrong?

When you say 'moved offices' was all of the networking equipment moved as well? On the printer, print the configuration page so that you can see what the IP address it is using.

Can you ping it by IP address and not by name? That would point to a DNS issue.

Did you create a new subnet in the new office or just use all the same ip addresses?

Did you update/change the network settings on the xerox for new gateway and anything else that changed?

Just had this issue yesterday on a 6505 xerox and it was related to IPV6.  Powered it down and moved it and it would never come back up on network.  I did not change anything on printer before power down.  Changed the IPV6 to enable and everything worked again.  I think it is very strange.  Not using anything V6 on network in this remote office.  Only 3 computers.

Have you tried to reconfigure the network settings on the Printer and see if that worked?
