I am trying to install Dell Laserjet 5210n on our school network server so it can be shared across all clients. I have assigned a static IP address to the printer and I can ping it. When I try to install the drivers I downloaded from the Dell website I get the attached error.
I have tried installing as a network printer using the TCP/IP port and also as a local printer also using the TCP/IP port. Either way I get the same result.
The Server on the network is running Windows Server 2008R2 and all of our clients are Windows 7 Pro. I did try to install it using a PCL driver found in Windows and I was able to print one test page but after that the printer went offline and will not come back on line even though I can ping still ping it.
