Hello Experts,

We have 8 Windows 7 64bit PCs and two Server 2003 servers in a network. We have 2 printers and 1 plotter.

an HP 5200N, a HP 5550dtn and a HP 800PS Plotter.

Plotting and Printing works fine from Word, Excel, Adobe Products to all 3 Print Devices.

With AutoCAD we can only print to the 5550DTN and to the 800PS 42" Plotter.

If we try to print from AutoCAD to the HP 5200N AutoCAD locks up and we have to terminate it in task manager to continue.

I've upgraded all the drivers to HP's latest drivers. I've tried the printer connected to the network as a share and I also configured it directly with an IP and both ways lock up AutoCAD.

Do you have any Ideas for me on how to fix this issue?

TIA,

Lasareath
