raw and EMF printing

raw and EMF printing

Post by Tim » Thu, 08 Jan 2004 09:10:58


I have 2 Win2k pro workstations connected to a novell
server.
I am having trouble getting the work stations to print
in the EMF mode, on an HP network printer, the default to
the raw mode. If I allow the print to create a raw file
it explodes to roughly 10meg, where as when I use the EMF
mode the file size is roughly 2meg. I have tried to
change the print protocol under the printer
properties/advanced/print processor, but when I try to
save the setting it get and error message, "unable to
save settings".

When I had Win98se workstations I had no problems getting
the OS to use the EMF protocol for printing.

any advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

Thats because spooling a raw file requires a windows operating system at
both ends of the connection, Novell wouldn't know what to do with an EMF
file.

Spooling EMF is slightly different on Win95/98/Me, the spooled EMF file is
rasterised when it leaves the spooler on the workstation, with Windows
NT/2000/XP it gets rasterised on the server.
