Specs: Windows XP Pro
I have a shared Canon printer which is connected with usb to a win xp pro computer called SERVER. This printer is shared in a LAN by the computer called SERVER.
I have another computer with win xp pro called A which is connected to the same LAN. Therefore A can print to the Cannon printer. Nonetheless, A takes too long in printing: may be 2 or 3 minutes everytime something is sent for printing.
Any idea to speed up this printing process?
I have to say that the computer connected with usb to the Cannon printer, prints very quickly without delay.

You can try this. On the XP system (not server) go into printer settings, and create a new printer. Instead of making it a network printer, pick local printer. Then create a new port, and point the new port to \\server\sharename (where sharename is the name of the share on server).

This will trick XP into thinking it is a local printer, even though it is not.
