problem between the printer and your Print Server, choose one
of the following options:

     - If you are using an EPSON printer (Stylus Color Printer):

       All port names MUST be preceded by the
       letters "LPTN:".  Therefore, please rename all respective
       port names to begin with "LPTN:" (N=1,2,3: For example,
       LPT1:PSxxxxxx for parallel port one; LPT2:PSxxxxxx for
       parallel port two; LPTN:PSxxxxxx for logical printer.  
       Note that PSxxxxxx is the default print server name.

       You may need to change the setting of the Epson
       Spool Manager.  To do this, start the Epson Spool Manager from the
       program files menu, select "Queue Setup" from the menu, and
       click on the "Use Print Manager For this port" box. Then
       click OK to exit.


     - If you are using an HP InkJet Printer or any other printer
       that provides bi-directional support

       While printing, if you see the error message, "There is
       an error writing to PSxxxxxx ...," disable bi-directional
       support on the printer. You can disable bidirectional
       support by right-clicking on the printer icon and selecting
       Properties>Details>Spool Settings...>. Next, select
       "Disable Bi-directional support for this printer."
