Whay type of printer you have? If it direct connected to you HP box, then have a look at the infor in:
http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=859909
to check your printer configurations.
If it is a network printer (with built in NIC or connect to a printer sever) you need to make sure your network is not overloaded, or the printer is not in sleeping mode before you print.
also make the filesystem is not FULL in your box or the printer server.

Thank you, Yuzh.  Our printers are HP LaserJet 4000 series.  The enclosed link was informative, but it did not applied to our case.  Our network prints defined in /etc/hosts
123.123.111.111 print1
123.123.111.112 print2...

Our printers are NIC built in, I verified the network and printers are enbled and in accepting requests status.  Filessystem is definitely not full.  Please advice.

when you telnet to the Laserjet 4000N printer, the connection is also slow?
It could be a DND setting problem,
1) check your /etc/resolv.conf file looks like:

nameserver 123.123.20.5

replace "123.123.20.5" with your DNS server IP
2) check  your /etc/nsswitch.conf  file, and make sure that it has:

hosts:     files dns [NOTFOUND=continue]

# you can just modify the record to make it use files and DNS

if you still have probem, check your router, gateway settings.

Thank you, Yuzh.  There was one of the nameserver no longer existed, but it still resided in the conf file.
