  • Printer, double trouble

    Hi guys, I am having a small problem:

    I have 2 identical HP inkjet printers with lan connectors. Those 2 printers are on 2 different locations. I thought by setting same IP on them, and same port and same name that I would be able to use both of them with one printer installed on PC, but that didn't work so well. One printer is working great, but jobs for second one are always getting stuck in spooler. OS is WinXP SP3 and printers are connected using LAN. I never use both printers at same time, since one is located in office and other one is at home. Any idea why is this not working?

    Tnx for help guys

    Are the LAN's you are connecting to on the same network segment???

      Yeah, they are both 192.168.100.0/24 networks, and printers have same IP address

        Is one on a domain and the other a workgroup???

        You'll probably find its a permissions issue.
