I have a Canon 5000 printer on my network that is amazingly slow when printing PDFs.
For example, if I print a 5MB PDF with 11 pages, it will print the first page immediately, then the second and third about 10 minutes later, a 4th 10 minutes after that.

The printer does have a security keypad between it and the network connection, and the printer is managed by a program called Equitrac, which allows users to track to which client the printing is to be allocated to.

I have tried printing directly from the server (2003 Standard) to the printer with the same results.
