Hi all I wonder if you can help with something I have installed a new printer for someone and set it up as a shared printer then installed the machine on the other two computers, the machine that is directly connected to printer works fine, the others take 20 seconds to start the job, it does this for every page, I have captured the action and it seems to fuss around trying to connect to something that shouldn't even exist \Dell01,Xcvport \Dell01hp3010 this fails and it is not until later in the trace at the 21 seconds mark when it tries \Dell01hp3010 without the xcvport thing that it connects and works.

I connected up old printer and it works fine I captured the old printer and it doesn't show this ,xcvport (it does have the comma in it).

I am not sure how to attach trace files here ???

Thanks for ideas.
