Network Printing Brutally Slow
I am printing on a home network, the clients being laptops running Vista Ultimate 32, and the "print server" still running XP Professional on SP2. I set up an HP AIO 8500 on the network, but printing to it from the clients is painfully slow - 20 minutes for a single three page PDF?

Part of me thinks the print protocol written by Microsoft is the stupidest protocol ever written - I've always felt that network printing was not really distributed - but something else seems to be at play this time that makes it slower and more pitiful than ever.

Is printing from Vista clients to a shared XP print resource just not a good thing, or is there something else I could set on either end that would make this go better? Thanks.

Re: Network Printing Brutally Slow
I have both winxp & vista PC's on the network, all connected via router that
features a printer server and have had no such issues.
Recently added a printer to one PC that connects via a seperate wireless
print server, also no issues
All are HP printers.
It would appear something is wrong with your setup
