Apologies if this is the wrong place as this has aspects of printing and networking.
I have a client wanting to print a 10+MB (14.4MB to be exact) and looking at the queue, it spool blooms to 47MB taking a long time to print. Client said an hour til it printed, I'd guess slightly less than that, but still far too long.
I have tried Direct Printing which has failed to accelerate the matter. I have enabled Spooler Printing via the WIM, tired EF 1.008 (under print processor), switching from WSD to IP\Port, shrinking the image scale to at the PC print screen, switching to Print after last page spooled, Stop and Start (not Restart) Print Spooling Service; all didn't resolve the issue.
The client is not willing to edit image size on 10+MB files to reduce file size as I had done that with the image and it did print. They are also not willing to give the photographer instructions to not send such large files to them.
Client PC information (Though there will be MACs introduced later.)
Windows 10 Home 64-bit on HP computer
Connected to network via Network Cable (Assuming Cat 5e)
So in my effort to do research on the matter I wish to query the brain trust.
Here is my research thus far.
Print Spooling Issue (Possibilities)
0) Postscript (?) [[PS3 on order for device]]
1) Try PCL 5 Driver
2)Clear Printer Spooler Files and Enable the Spooler Service
1. Click Start, type "Services.msc" (without the quotation marks) in the Start Search box and press Enter.
2. Double-click "Printer Spooler" in the Services list.
3. Click Stop and click OK.
4. Click Start, type "%WINDIR%\system32\spool\printers" in the Start Search box and press Enter, delete all files in this folder.
5. Click Start, type "Services.msc" (without the quotation marks) in the Start Search box and press Enter.
6. Double-click "Printer Spooler" in the Services list.
7. Click on Start. In the Startup Type list, make sure that "Automatic" is selected and click OK.
3)"One way I found around this was to add the printer as a local printer pointing to the port - as opposed to connecting to it mapping across the server. As soon as I did that, print speed was normal.
4)Shorten Printer Name (maybe)"
