I am currently printing through a capture printer witch is connected to the LPT1 port of another computer.

The problem is that I when I send a document it is really slow, even when I send word documents without images. Any ideas on how to solve it?

Thanks.

Can you give us some idea of the hardware spec of the two machines you are using and the OS on each machine. Got a suspicion there may well be anumber of things going on at the same time which is in effect slowing down progress. So info please.

Go to printer's Properties/Advanced and choose Print directly to the printer.

I already have the option "print directly to printer"

I am working with a Window XP OS, and the machine which has the printer is running with Windows 98. The printer is a HP 1100A.

Thanks.

Try Disabling the bidirectional support

Click Start, Settings, and then Printers from the Windows desktop.

Right-click to open the printer driver and select Properties from the drop-down menu.

Select the Ports tab.

Uncheck Enable bidi and click OK.

also if the issue persists try using a pcl5e or a PS driver

if nothing works install a Laserjet 4Plus drivers this would resolve the issue.

good luck....
