This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

How about providing more info? Network settings would be a start. – Fergus Nov 11 '11 at 23:16
Is the printer working otherwise? Is it reachable from other machines? How did you determine the printer's IP address? – David Schwartz Nov 11 '11 at 23:27
Check your gateway. Make sure it is the same for both your printer and your computer. – Randolf Richardson Nov 12 '11 at 0:58
