i am printing from a g4 powerbook running 10.3.3 to hpdesign jet 455ca through jetdirect ex. I have done the above steps by using the ip address. This all worked. My problem is finding a way for the printer to not time out on large files. i am trying to print a 12mb file from illustrator. It has hundreds of layers and it seems to do everything fine until about 1/3 of the way it times out and stops printing. Is anyone having this problem printing large files? The office computers that also access this printer are Windows Machines and in their print dialog info is a choice to make the spooling occur on the computer instead of on the printer. Is there anything comproble for the machintosh? How are people printing large files?
