Ping but the response is

  1. Dear Folks,

    I had bought a new Canon PIXMA MP 628 printer and it works well with my
    tablet PC running Vista Home Premium.

    However, I am having difficulties to enable it to work on my another
    notebook, which is running Vista Home Premium as well.

    Initially, I thought that it could be the printer drivers problem and thus,
    I reinstalled all printer drivers but alas, no effect. When I went to the
    command prompt and ping "" [IP address of the printer], the
    response "Reply from Destination Host Unreachable"

    Could somebody help me on this?

  2. Could be the local computer IP? In most cases, if you can't
    reach the remote networking device, you will receive this message. Posting
    back with the result of ipconfig /all may help.
