Every 12th print job is paused on network printer
Posted on 2005-04-01
The reason why this question is not in the Printing section is that I have the WinNT solution, which does not work in Win2K.
And now to the problem:
Some time ago, my users were experiencing a problem, when every 12th print job sent to network printers would pause. The fix for our NT servers was to run regedit, then go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\LPDSVC\LPR and change the value from 0 to 1, which enabled local buffering for every printed document.
The print jobs are all being sent to the print server from an AS400.
We have now installed a Win2K server machine as a print server, and the problem has re-occured. Going into the registry, I couldn't find the same entries - different location maybe, which makes sense, but I also came up with nothing when searching for LPDSVC within the registry.
Any ideas anyone? Appreciate your help.
Please let me know if you need more info.
