Is it a networking printer? If it isn't a network printer, you would not be able to print it over a network.

Have you tried Switching everything off (printers,
computers, hubs, switches, routers
modems, etc.). Disconnect from mains
power, remove batteries from portables and wait a minute or so for
everything to discharge.
Disable all firewalls (NAT and software) then power up again and see if it helps!

How is your network setup and what OS runs on the server?
