Slow printing over network - Freecom StorageGatewa

  Bob Bob™ 15:28 23 Nov 2008

The Freecom FSG3 storage gateway lets you plug in USB printers and have them as network printers.

I have set this up and it works, however it takes about 1 and a half minutes before the printer actually prints from when the print button is pressed.

I have seen problems like this on Google, something to do with Samba.

Any ideas?

It sounds like this is being used as a Print Server, if this is the case this may be the reason. Some Print Servers can take quite a while to send the print job to the printer.

Any way to bypass this server?
