Slow/intermitent network printing

Post by thearne3 » Tue Jan 30, 2007 7:20 pm

Hi,

I am printing from an iMac800 (Tiger) over an ethernet to a WinXP PC with a MP830 attached. When prints are successful, they are slow (15 secs + per page of regular text, eg Word doc). Often the link doesn't work - especially after rebooting the Mac. I have to go through the Add Printer process all over again.

The PC has no user login password and I am using the user's account to login.

Any help on the slowness and need to re-Add Printer?

Thanks!

Windows / Samba network printing problems

Post by zedonet » Thu Feb 08, 2007 9:03 am

Hello,

regarding no connection to a Samba/Windows printer I answered in another thread
The error message

NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

can occur when printing to a Windows network printer if

- no user name has been entered

- or if the printer needs authentication and the wrong username / password combination has been entered

We found that the user name can get lost after modifications in PrintFab Toolbox (keyfile registration, new profile added, custom page size added).

There is a bugfix version available:

ftp://ftp.zedonet.com/printfab/printfab-2.05beta3.dmg

(the final version 2.05 will follow soon).
If have no explanation for slow printing speed. If printing via USB port is quicker, it may take long until the network connection is established.

I have the same issue with my Pixma MP500. I'm glad I found this thread. Thanks for your help zedonet. Could the slow connection have something to do with the cables I'm using (network connection)?

Hello,

it is unlikely that a "bad cable" is the reason.

Please describe your network setup - is the printer connected to another PC (which operating system) or to a router with printer server functionality?

What is the network address (URI) in TurboPrint Control, column "URI"?
