danny_dion

I need to print "Label" to a Zebra LP 2844.
I want use LPR port to my server 2000 to reach LPD to my windows XP pro.
The printing is Ok if I print Label One by one.
If many print jobs come to the Server spooler, the printing hang for 2-3 minutes
and then continue without errors after this time.
I tried with different printer and always the problem.

Someone know if parameters existe to bypass the 2-3 minutes waiting time?

For RFC compliance, the TCP source ports used are 721 - 731. TCP/IP
protocol has a timeout of 4 minutes when it will not reuse a port until 4
minutes after it was released. You can change this timeout or force LPR out
of RFC compliance

TCP/IP and NBT Configuration Parameters for Windows XP
change TcpTimedWaitDelay
Key: Tcpip\Parameters
Value Type: REG_DWORD - Time in seconds
Valid Range: 30-300 (decimal)
Default: 0xF0 (240 decimal)
Description: This parameter determines the length of time that a connection
stays in the TIME_WAIT state when being closed. While a connection is in the
TIME_WAIT state, the socket pair cannot be re- used. This is also known as
the "2MSL" state, as by RFC the value should be twice the maximum segment
lifetime on the network. See RFC793 for further details.
