Printing with NT 4.0 SP6

By Jeffrey Czapla ·
I am Trying to get maximum throughput printing on a NT 4.0 SP 6 machine. The type of printer is an HP 8100.I have the 8100 PCL 5E driver loaded and I can get approx. 15 pages/minute. With the 5si drivers loaded i can reach 20 pages/minute To get maximum throughput on this type of printer you need to run ECP. Unfortunately ECP is not supported in NT 4.0. If anyone has any suggestions for this it would be great.

Printing with NT 4.0 SP6

The best solution is named "POSTCRIPT". Change the language of your printer to postcript (PS). It will runs up 2 times faster and the file will be the half in size.
Also you will need to change the printer driver to postcript, because the PCL driver wont' work with a postcript printer.
You can, of course loosing operating memory, load both languages in the printer (by default only pcl is enabled) and define two printer on the client side, one PS an the other PCL.
Try the difference!, awesome!
