One additional piece of information... It appears that I had not set
the DNS server and NTP server correctly on all four printers and they
were running with a very old date (would you believe 1970?). I have
since ensured that all four printers now have the correct DNS server
IP address, the host name of our local NTP server, the correct time
zone and that they all now have the correct current date and time via

I am not sure if this would have had anything to do with the DNS issue
but it was something that was obviously wrong and needed to be fixed.
