Slow printer spooling from dos programs
Posted on 2006-06-05
I am using a Dos accounting program on a Win NT4 SP6 network.
All workstations are Win98se.
When using the Dos accounting program to print, the program sends the print job in a second or two and then returns to the menu. But it then takes a minute or so before the printer starts.
If I bring up the printer, it just says the job is spooling....
I can print a ticket, then walk out to the warehouse and still have to wait for the print job to print. Its slow......
If i exit from the dos program the printer starts imediatlely. I am printing to OKI320's connected to workstations.
Any hints on the hold up would be appreciated!!
