Re: Remote print

Hi, can you provide more information about the network infrastructure and the remote site please. If you are printing to a device on a WAN, it could be a timeout issue on a router, and nothing to do with OS, similarly if you are using printservers to house the remote queue, this could also cause you some issues.

regards

Matt

Re: Remote print

same subnet?

lpd on W2K is not very realiable use a printserver box instead (about $50).
