LPR Communication Failed: ... error: 36

LPR Communication Failed: Initial connection test at bind time failed, error: 36
Can Not Ping Printer: Last good ping: never
SNMP Communication Failed:

We see this error on iManager on multiple printers through out our LAN. So far we have discovered that we cannot ping the printers until after the NIC on the printers has been reset. Either by powering off the printer or pulling the network cable out and reconnecting it after 30 secs. After doing this we are able to get the printers functioning again.

Any help on why this would be happening and/or how to resolve would be helpful. Could the problem come from a bad NIC on our print server, or some other setting on our Print Server.

We are currently running NetWare6.5 SP Rev 8 on our print server.

Do you have the latest available firmware for the printers/nics?
Upgrading firmware is a good place to start solving this kind of problems.

Re: LPR Communication Failed: ... error: 36

Hi,
I have the same problem.
But my Lexmark printers have the latest firmware update.
We`re able to ping them even if they`re in error
I have to power off the printers.
I`m still try to solve this.
Thank you.

Re: LPR Communication Failed: ... error: 36

do they still print? If so, it's an age old but annoying problem, that you'll unfortunately have to ignore...

Yes, they still print after restarting them manually. They worked fine before.
Unfortunately the users won`t ignore it.
