I have a quite broad but troublesome question to ask.
The problem is, one network printer (installed on the main fileserver and shared to workstations) tends to go offline from time to time without any interaction. And comes back online while im fiddling around in properties and pulling/re plugging some lan cables in the switch.
It is in a Active Directory domain.
When the printer goes offline I get no response when pinging it from the server.
The printer has the settings of manual IP-adress (192.168.0.31) not using DHCP, with the gatway of (192.168.0.10) the server has (192.168.0.1)
I know its a broad question, but does anyone have a basic guess or pointer to where I should look further into. My feeling is that its something networking related.
I dont know what im doing to get it to work, im just fiddling around and suddenly it works. Last time i changed ports in the switch. Then it works great from all the computers in the domain, until it goes offline again.
Thanks in advance
