A HP Laserjet 6P/MP Postscript printer connected to a Server 2008 R2 won't print PDF:s from a LAN Client

A HP Laserjet 6P/MP Postscript printer connected to a network through a Server 2008 R2 won't print PDF:s from a LAN client. Half a page is printed, preceeding a page with a message that the availble memory is not enough to handle the job. Word and Excel document prints OK.

Printing PDF:s locally on the server is no problem. Total memory of the printer is 11 MB. What setting on the Server 2008 R2 will fix this?

Check Port settings, use raw 9100, instead of lpr, and check for timeout settings.

Or try another driver. I think you can choose between a PCL and a Postscript driver.

PCL printers can have memory issues. There are 2 things you can try to fix it:

1. Select "Print as image" under the Advanced button in the Proint dialogue box. That will create a larger print file, but will require less printer memory.
2. Use the PostScript driver. PS does not suffer from memory problems anywhere near as much as PCL. Also, PDFs usually print better with PS.

Changing job timeout from 0 to 10 seconds did the job!
