Ping sends just a small package to an ip address. That ip address responses back something like "receieved". Mainly used to check if system is still alive, or if routing to that system and from that system to you is correct.
When using TCP a network package is send to a device. The device receives it and acknowlege it. If no acknowlegement... package will be resend.
Is printing using UDP or TCP? Is it printing at all?
