Printer Offline!!

By msheekh ·
I have Netware 3.12 server and three PCs with windows 9x. One of the PCs ( has win9 has a dialup connection. Everytime a user tries to connect with dailup connection the printer goes offline and becames inaccessible for the machine. The odd thing is that printer works fine if user doesnot initiate the dailup connection. I looked up things including IRQ conflict --- no conflict. Any suggestions will be appreciated?
Thnks

Check the settings of the dial-up connection, and make sure only TCP/IP is bound to it. If IPX is also bound, confusion can result, which leads to lost connections.

BudTheGrey, thanks for suggestion, but I did check that already, and made sure that TCP/IP was the only protocol bound to the connection. Meanwhile, I connected the printer directly to PC's parellet port, but it's still doing same thing when the connection is initiated the printer goes offline. It's one or the other!

is this dialup modem internal or external? if internal I would like to try an external to see it solves the prolbem. Hope this helps.
