    iPrint Direct printing

    When normal use of printing with iPrint (spooling print job, via iPrint
    Manager), working local spool in Workstation fine.

    But when usage of iPrint Direct printing, local spool in Workstation of
    print job is not used. Print jobs are sent direct to printserver.
    That’s not good, because affect of performance of Workstation.

    I now "Enable iPrint Direct printing" is working "by design", it´s
    really direct! But why are "normal iPrint" using local spool in
    Workstation and then spoolfunction in iPrint Manager?

    It’s important for us to use "iPrint Direct", because we have lot of
    unreliable ADSL-connections.

    With iPrint Direct printing, our customers have all advantage of
    centralized printing/maintenance and no disadvantage.

    Environment Server: NetWare 6.5 SP6, with latest iPrint/NDPS patches.
    Environment Workstation: Windows XP SP2, iPrintClient 4.30, NwClient

    Be grateful for tip and hint.

    I have the same problem.

    When printing with iPrint Direct it doesn't buffer anything at all at the workstation and if the printer is off or unavailable, it freezes the program you printed from for a while, then shows an error "printer .... not available". Is there any way around this?
