IP address instead of computer name   25 February 2006, 06:23

I am currently using the trial version and for some reason, one of the print job listed in the print inspector showed an IP address (I know which computer it's from ) and not the computer name. I am wondering if anybody know what might be the cause for this?

Thanks

This may happen time to time but unfortunately the reason is out of Print Inspector control. The names appear exactly as these reported by the print spooler and sometimes it returns just IP address of a machine instead of its name (I suppose due to temporary WINS or NetBios system fault)

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
