I had the same problems you mentioned. Print jobs, especially
miniaturized graphics from Excel, went into an endless printing fit
and had to be lprm'ed on the Solaris machine. Then I happend to read
about a solution. I don't remember where or who wrote it so I can't
give credit to anyone.
Solution for Solaris 2.5.1 :
run Jetadmin under Solaris
a. Open the Configuration
b. Modify existing spooler queue(s)
c. select a queue
d. Additional printer changes
e. set True End Of Job to OFF !!!
I tried this, and it seems to have helped in our environment:
Solaris 2.5.1 and Samba 1.9.18p7 with about 25 WIN95 clients.
