Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

For business purposes I connect to a server in another city and work and print remotely. Usually I see my computer drives listed as part of hte compouter configuation on the server, so, for example I see my C drive etc, listed as if it was a drive on the server. In a similar way I usually see my printer. I see my printer listed in the array of printers but i cannot select it as a red x error says that the printer does not exist on the server. what must i do to restore the connection.

This could happen when the drivers of the printer was recently updated from the server machine. First try to add a new Printer and search with the "Add New Printer" wizard (if you can only access the server with full control, otherwise you'll not be authorized to do this).

If the server is maintained by someone else from the Server Location, you better contact them, It's not a big deal since you are directly accessing, if you have the administrator's rights, you can do it, but if you don't have it, the only option is the Server Admin who can fully access it and change or modify any settings including the printer's driver or any hardware or software.

If you can fully access the server and you are having problem adding or reinstalling the printer, do let me know so that I can assist you further.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Well, I need more info about your problem, is the printer connected to your Pc or to the server? I am confused. Are you accessing your system remotely or are you accessing the server remotely from your pc? Let me know the printer's model and make and the connection type (network or sharing or usb, etc..) What is the Os of your server? and what is your pc's Os? I am sorry for asking you these much question, but I need to know so that I can help you better. Hope you don't mind.




    From the first sentence of your first post, it seems you are accessing the server from your pc, but when I go down, it seems you are accessing your pc from the server and making print-outs on your remotely connected pc.




    Thanks.

Lost connectivity after power outage


If this is a printer WITHOUT WiFi or bluetooth - and you have it connected to another computer (Print Server) via a USB cable - you need to make sure you can see that computer from the other computer you are printing from. Use the network explorer - if you can see the computer and the printer you should be able to print to it.

Sometimes, it may be secured with a password. I found if I can map a shared drive from my laptop to my print server then I can print again. So see if you can see the printer and printer server computer from the other computer. If so you may need to add that printer again to you printer list.

Print server Iogear GPSU21 + HP Deskjet F4180 do not print!


The print server is Vista compatible. However, the Deskjet F4180 is not listed as a supported printer.Look at this list: http://iogear.com/files/pdf/GPSU21_Printer_Compatiblity_List_4-20-09.pdf . This print server is not the right one for your printer. You can either try a different print server, a supported printer or directly connect the printer to a computer and make that computer a print server for the rest of your network. The last option will take a bit more work. In Windows, the directly connected computer will need to allow sharing for the printer and the firewall software will need to trust the other machines in the network connect to it. The other computers will only be able to print and not use the other multi-function features. You may need to get additional software drivers to make this work (particularly if one computer uses a 64-bit OS and another has a 32-bit OS).

I hope this helps.

Make sure you have your IP addresses properly configured. An IPv4 address is made up of four numbers fro 0 to 255 (eight-bit binary numbers) separated by periods, for example, 192.168.1.1. The first three numbers are the subnet address; for small networks, the factory default is usually 192.168.1. Every computer, router, print server, etc., on the subnet must have the same subnet address to communicate directly. (Generally, there is only one router on a subnet). Also, verify that everybody has the same subnet mask (usually 255.255.255.255).

Client computers on a network usually have addresses assigned automatically by the router using DHCP. Print servers and the router should have their addresses assigned manually so the other units on the network can find them at the same place after a restart. Routers typically get address 0 or 1 (e. g., 192.168.1.1). It is a good idea to configure the router to reserve the print server address (or make sure it is in the block of reserved addresses so it is never assigned to anything else since that would cause a conflict (server busy?). Use a high number for the print server address (e. g.,200-255, as in 192.168.1.254, which is the default address for the Airlink 101). On Windows, type <Windows-r> to get the run program <filename> dialog, then type "cmd" to get a command line window. Type "ipconfig /all" to read the IP address information. Type "ipconfig /renew" to get a new address. For information on using ipconfig to modify IP address parameters, type "ipconfig /?"

On each Mac, open the Network control panel, select IPv4, click on "Advanced", then click on "Renew IP lease." Verify that the computer gets an IP address in the correct range from the router, for example, IP address 192.168.1.14, subnet mask 255.255.255.255, default gateway 192.168.1.1. The DNS server will most likely be on a different subnet out on the Internet.

Now you should be able to find the print server using Rendezvous, LPR printiving via IP or AppleTalk.

http://www.airlink101.com/download_links/apsusb1_manual.pdf
The manual linked here is a bit old, but it covers Mac OS 10.3 configuration for a Airlink server. Your server may be a different model, but operation is probably similar unless AppleTalk and other older protocols have been removed.

Upgrade failure


The software that came with the WPS54G model is not (yet)compatible with Vista systems. This model is not listed on the Vista-ready devices from Linksys' website (www.linksys.com/vista). The behavior more likely a result of a software incompatibility.

For PrintServer network setup, you may still use the CD on a non-Vista system (XP, Win2000 or lower). Or, by installing it manually by accessing it's web interface.

To make your Vista working with the printserver WITHOUT the use of the PrintServer CD, do the ff:
1. Make sure PrintServer is configured on the network with the same wireless settings of your router and with a manually assigned IP address which is in range of the router's IP segment.
2. Make sure that computer can print locally to the printer (e.g. via USB connection to the printer).
3. When computer can surf the net and connected to the router's network (wired or wireless), follow the steps from this article and make sure Printer is showing up as Online.

Goodluck!
