Mark, it may depend on how he set up printing. If it is CUPS and it can
not connect to LPD or IPP downstream, then that particular queue will be
stopped. So, one may need to restart queues after networks outage. The
most robust way I know is to have CUPS connect jetdirect (9100). No matter
whether there is outage or not, the queue is not stopped... So, it well
could be for him to go carefully through configuration in the first place,
and figure out what in particular happens due to network outage. Requires
some actual sysadmin work ;-)
