At work, we have a print server that I can connect to easily (\\br-xprint).

For some reason, the print server won't come up when I try to connect. I get a window that says

 windows cannot access \\br-xprint 
 error code 0x80070035 
 the network path was not found

Windows firewall is off and there are no other sharing issues regarding the network type.

Pinging the server returns a successful result.

I've also confirmed that it's not just this server, but all servers are not working.

Can you at least ping the ip of that print server? –  Darius Sep 19 '11 at 21:52
When I ping the server it returns an IP perfectly. –  BioXhazard Sep 19 '11 at 21:54
can you try going to it via \\ip rather than it's friendly name? –  William Hilsum Sep 19 '11 at 22:14
Pinging the IP works but still connecting \\142.55..etc doesn't work. –  BioXhazard Sep 22 '11 at 14:32
