I'm having an issue with my network printer in that CUPS can't seem to reach the printer unless I power it off, and power it back on. Anything remaining in the print queue will print after a reboot of the printer.

Scanning software (xsane) doesn't have this issue, as I can scan at anytime.

Looks like it was a name resolving failure. Fixed by statically assigning an IP to the printer and changing the connection info to the ip.
