Slow Printing to Novell Queue via JetDirect
Posted on 2007-08-11
Have recently upgraded a network structure and installed SBS and new Dell PC's running Windows XP SP2.
For logistical reasons have retained Novell 3.12 as manufacturing software runs on this platform, and at this stage cannot be change/upgraded.
When sending a print Oki Microline 5521 via JetDirect print server, it takes 30 seconds for the first page to print. All other pages on same print run follow immediately. Next print sent, also takes 30 seconds for first page to print.
On existing PC running Win 95, same print takes only 5 seconds to print.
Use this capture command to set printers:-
net use lpt1: /delete
net use lpt2: /delete
net use lpt3: /delete
net use lpt1: \\mid_steels\emmag
net use lpt2: \\mid_steels\emmag
net use lpt3: \\mid_steels\emmag
net use /persistent:no
Use this command to start the Novell based app:-
C:\WINDOWS\system32\command.com /c i:\login\xp_start.bat
XP_Start.bat is as follows
Sysrun0 is as follows:-
Sysmen0 and syscomm are exe files within the Novell app.
Can you help me find a solution to this print problem please?
