net use lpt1: \\node\prt

On a slow VMS Box with pathworks this cmd runs in 1 sec.

On a Dual 1G Linux Box with 2.2.7 samba it takes about 7-8 seconds on a 350 PC.
I am using lprng and loading the printers from the printcap file.

Does anyone have any idea's on how to speed this up?

I tried it on several samba servers and it works the same on all of them.

I'm not trynig anything fancy just standard printer sharing.
