Hello there, we have some Problems with three Copy/Printing Stations. After sending a Printjob with about 500 Pages, its possible that the sended printjob will abort after 200-400 Pages. Yes, on all three Stations the same. We tried so much, but we can't locate it. We changed from Server based Printing to Client-Driver based Printing with no changes to the error.

I have a Wireshark Capture, a long one, maybe someone of you can help me. It's to big for CloudShark so i put it to my DropBox Account.


I got many errors with:

There are several streams that successfully finished the data transfer (FIN - FIN/ACK), meaning the printer accepted the full data set. The transmitted data is (almost) identical, with just a few differences at the beginning (date/time/job number).

So, if those print jobs were also aborted after 200-300 pages, I't more likely to be a problem with the printer itself (bad data format, printer internal problems, etc.) than anything on the network.
