    Shared printer errors, Win98 p2p

    Locked

    by sbest67 ·

    We have a small network where I work; 7 Win98se boxes and 3 printers. The printers are all shared, and up until about 2 months ago all was flawless. We switched out a printer, and after un-installing the old and installing the new, every 2nd or 3rd document generates a spooler error. We have re-installed the drivers and each printer works flawlessly from the local machine. Is there something that I am bone-heading with my spool settings? All machines are set to start printing after first page is spooled, using RAW for 1 printer and EMF for the other.
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

      I ran into similar problems when I had 1 machine printing with a PCL5 driver and another printing with a postscript driver. I solved this problem by matching the drivers on all of the machines using this printer.

      I have effected a partial work-around by capturing the printer port on the client machines and directing them to a parallel port. Any reason that might have helped?
