Print sending problem from Windows 2003 server to a printer on xp client

By shehzad.kamran ·
we are working in a small LAN with 10 computers on Domain. Printer is installed and shared from clients working on windows xp. Server is installed with Windows server 2003. when I try to send print from this server the job hangs up and takes 2 to 3 minutes to complete this job.
what could be the possible reason for this issue??

Request for Clarification

Not sure I really understand how things are setup here.

Is there more than 1 Printer Involved?

Do other computers on this LAN Share this Printer?

XP has a Upper Limit of 10 Concurrent Connections possible and quite often XP doesn't release recently closed Connections so if there are 10 XP Machines involved here and the Server makes 11 it's possible that ti's being locked out by the XP Systems which are connecting here.

How are you sending the Print Job from the Server as a Open Program or right clicking on a file and telling it to print?
