Specs: Win2008 Server
OKIDATA CX2633mfp is config. for LPR port. Randomly will just disapear of the network, nobody can print to it. What is the advantage of using the LPR port versus RAW port if there is any? There are ~25 users on the network and 15 is using this printer, scanning, copy and fax.

Here is a good overview of printing

lpt or raw has nothing to do with the printer disappearing.

Does this printer has a static ip?
Is that ip within the range of your dhcp scope?

Are there any other printers listed or did the printers list gets completely empty?
If it's completely empty, the spoolsv service may have stopped.
Check the services for that.

Yes, for sure it is a static IP within DHCP scope.

There are few other HP printers on the same subnet.
The listed printers are all there, and seem to be working OK.

Thank you guys.

"Yes, for sure it is a static IP within DHCP scope"

The CORRECT statement would be its a static ip NOT within the dhcp scope.

You will cause a device to "disappear" if you are also assigning the same ip to another device via dhcp.
