I added a network printer on my pc as tcp/ip printer .. the next day the port name changed to the name of the printer and in the IP address field also I found the printer name . I tried to ping the printer by its name and I failed then I deleted the port and added a new tcp/ip port and it worked again . my question is why the port configuration got changed I mean the IP address in the port configuration got changed to the printer name . is it from WSD (the discovery port) on the printer properties?
note: the printer is also installed on a domain server and listed in the directory and shared from it. but in my pc I added it as network not as shared printer.
