Printer won't allow connection

Hi. We are running a Windows NT network. Print server is Windows NT workstation. It has three HP 8000's connected to it. Occasionally, one of the printers will give the following error message:

"No more connections can be made to this remote ocmputer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept. The printer will be set to work offline."

Nothing shows up in Event Viewer. There is no limit set on the number of users for any of these printers. Why are we getting this message and how can we fix it?


RE: Printer won't allow connection

When we tell the printer to print this thing comes up and it says printer can not be found or printer driver proublem. Could you tell me anything about it.


RE: Printer won't allow connection

How much memory is in the print server? If you are filling  the memory with large print jobs or just a lot it may give that message
