Further to my previous posts I have found out the following through

- Installing Windows XP Service Pack 2 seemed to resolve the issue.
- When I uninstalled SP2 the problems returned
- When I turn off Internet Connection Firewall on the LAN connection
(without SP2) the issues seem to be resolved.

So that begs the question, what's the ICF restricting that is causing
the delay in sending the print job?? My testing continues! Comments
welcome, thanks.
