print jobs goes to a wrong printer

Hello folks, my issue now is all my print jobs go to a wrong printer, even if i point to the desired printer; in my pc i have 2 network printers with different ip's, i can ping them w/o problems but when i send a job to an specific, the job goes to the other one, please any help will be appreciate it.

RE: print jobs goes to a wrong printer

Really need a lot more info than that...

- What OS?
- Are the ports mapped via DNS or IP Address?
- Did you double-check the properties of each printer to make sure their both not pointing to the same destination?
- Did it work originally then stop working?
- Make/model of printers?

You are supposed to mind read.

Right click PRINTER NAME >> Printer Properties >> Look at the PORTS tab.
This should explain why printer A is to pointing to printer B
