iprint client fails with linksys/xerox combo?

Hi,

Have been using iprint on netware 6.5 with xp clients for 2 years with
success.

Recently tried to install a linksys router (RV042) to replace old linksys
router (befsr81) and this seems to kill communication between the xerox
printers (document center 460 and 432 and work center m24). Other iprint
accessed printers such as the dymo label printers continue to work.
Xerox printers are connected directly to the network, label printers are
connected through a dlink print server.

This is a flat network with all machines on one IP subnet 192.168.0.0
What the router would have to do with it is beyond me.

Has anyone ever run into something like this before?

Thanks,

Mike

Do you use the Novell gateway or the Xerox gateway?
Can you ping the printer?

Is this using netmask 255.255.0.0? If so, your router might be upset by
the wrong netmask. Maybe it is doing some kind of proxy ARP and is
replying to ARP packets meant for the printer.

Hi Marcel,

Yes the printers are "pingable" from any station including the server on
the network. I am not on site right now but my feeling is we would have
used the novell gateway.
