From the specs I see that you can print directly from USB-Devices.
May this will be worth a try.
I don't think you can speed up the process on computer side, as the file is very large and this just needs a lot of time to process.
Printing via USB is not an option.
The example mentioned above is not a one time only... printing should be available to every user on the network.
It is not possible to print a file via usb stick from the usb port on the xerox machine. It is only possible via a computer connected via usb
Not what we want for every day users.....
But thanx for the idea.... Hope others wil follow :-)
Speed itself is not the problem.
I try printing via pcl because it's none blocking during the spool / rip phase
Other sollutions, even slower, that are non blocking will also help us out!
you can try to print the PDF into a file via PS to have the ripped file (*.ps) stored on the hard drive.
Than you can send this file to the printer via a LPR Tool like this one.
The benefit is, that the spool process does not affect the printer.
never tried this...
I'll try it later today and let you know....
Printing to file is no problem, but getting it printed is.
Tried with simple notepad file and can't get it to work.
When using the proposed LPR Utility I get the error "Printer refused to accept the print job with error status: 1"
Might be related to accounting features on the printer.
Tried some other tools like PrintFile but it aint working.
Just not my day today?
then I don't have any other ideas, sorry.
You should contact the Xerox support to explain that the MFP blocks all function when it processes PostScript files.
Ask for a firmware upgrade of the MFP and the RIP.
Thanx for your support.
I hope someone else might have an idea.
If I could find a way to get passed the 4 GB limitation my problems are solved.....
In the 32Bit world 4GB is the maximum of the addressable memory, theoretically.
Effectively you only can use about 3 - 3.5GB of the memory as the rest is already reserved to address the hardware and software you use.
This restriction applies to every 32Bit hardware (computer, MFP, printers, switches etc.).
The only way to use more than 4GB in one go is 64Bit.
But, this means you need new Hardware and Software.
