Dear Experts:

Iam having a desktop of windows xp professional printer 1020 plus installed locally to this printer and this desktop is joined to the samba server also the sharing for this printer is given for everyone , the users from other desktops if print is given some times it works fine but most of the times does not get print on the below mentioned situations

If  the user1 from system1 gives the print to the printer50 system( windows xp professional and printer connected locally to this system) this goes on to the queue but does not print it holds in the queue, now if the user2 form the system2 gives the print to the printer50 system print of  user2 does not come as user1 job is already in queue and further it does not print hence totally both user1 and user2 jobs are not processed for the print. Please suggest the best practice to resolve such issues, like is there any time intervals can be set if the print job exceeds certain time interval then it should die automatically so that other users pint jobs can be processed. Please help me to resolve this. Thanks in advance

You need to change the printer sharing from windows based (smb) to unix based (lpr).

Do you want to proceed?

"Iam having a desktop of windows xp professional printer 1020 plus installed locally to this printer" <- the printer is connected to windows xp pro or windows 7 pro?

For windows 7 pro, "Print Services for Unix" for XP is renamed to "LPD Print Service" and it is under "Print and Document Service" of "Turn Windows features on or off"
