TurboPrint can no longer reach the printer [SOLVED]

Post by fortiernor » Thu Dec 07, 2017 7:27 pm

I've been printing successfully with turboprint on my Epson P800 since the Fall of 2016. Now after not having printed for a couple of weeks, turboprint complains that the printer is unreachable. I have not modified configuration of cups, turboprint or the router regarding the printer. The printer is identified with lpd and a local static ip address, and I can successfully ping the printer with its ip address.
This is on Archlinux, up-to-date.

Any suggestion as to what to do to diagnose and solve the problem? Thank you.

Problem solved: it seems my Internet access provider made changes to router configuration. I reinstated the static IP address for the printer and modified the IP in CUPS, and everything works fine now.
