When i try to connect to a nework printer from a Win2k pro client i get the following message. _________________________________________________
Could not connect to the printer. You either entered a printer name that was incorrect or the specified printer is no longer connected to the server. Click Help for more information. _________________________________________________
The print server is running Windows server 2003 R2.
This problem only happens from time to time and on varried computers.
Have you tried browsing the network neighbourhood / searching active directory (if it's installed on the server) for the actual printer and checking that there isnt a problem with physically connecting to it at these times.
It could indicate a problem with the network, or as recap said a full printer queue, but then it should still connect.
Monitor what is going on at the printer end and also the network traffic itself to get a better idea of what is causing this issue.
