Epson Stylus Color 800: network printing problems
b. Thomas Maler claims there is a bug when printing at 1440dpi from Performa 6360 to Stylus Color 800 on a LocalTalk network. "When the document (3.5Mb Photoshop file) is 28%-31% finished spooling, the printing stops and the network seems busy, the printer seems busy (green light flashes), but nothing happens. The same document printed from Power Mac 7300/200 on the same network prints fine."
Update: Thomas traced this to the 54xx-64xx L2 Cache Reset extension. When he disabled it, the problem disappeared.
c. Tom Cody did get the 800 to print out his 3Mb Photoshop file over a LocalTalk network, but it took over 25 minutes at 720dpi. Printing a similar file from a PC took only a few minutes. He further writes: "Even after it prints, I must reset the printer to print another sheet because the Print command says the printer is being used by another user."
