Problem printing to IP printers

March 17, 2014

Recently, I expanded our IP range via subnet masking. I changed switches, printers, etc. to match. Everything seemed to be working.
 
This morning, people couldn't print to, but they could ping, the IP printers.
 
Turns out the fix was in the IP settings of the printer driver itself. There is an option for SNMP. Uncheck the SNMP box on the local machine's printer driver and the printer instantly shows up as online and users can print to it. Unfortunately, I had to touch each machine affected, but at least this worked.
