What is my printer doing?

    I've got a Panasonic Workio printer at work and after evaluating my syslog and it seems to be doing something every minute:
    Code:
    Nov 19 11:04:18 unknown daemon.info dnsmasq[847]: DHCPDISCOVER(br0) 00:11:3d:00:a9:82

    It seems like for some reason it tries to obtain a DHCP lease every minute.

    To expand on that a bit, it is _not_ trying to renew it's DHCP lease every minute. The DHCPDISCOVER means that it is starting from scratch and requesting a brand new lease, as if it had just been turned on.

    If I had to guess, I'd say the internal processor in the printer is crashing and rebooting every minute or so. Have you recently added memory to the printer?

    Come to find out its the DVR at work (and not the Printer, got the MAC addresses confused :DOH: ), it's plugged into a shotty surge protector, and has been acting up, time to disconnect from the network and see If I can get it back up and running properly.
    Thanks for the input :D
