Hi everyone,

I am using Samba 2.2.3a on a Redhat Linux 7.2 Intel server as a
printserver on a W2K PDC network.  I have a Xerox 440 printer, an HP
4500 PS and an HP 4550 PS printer using my Samba printserver.

I am often receiving the following error message:

ERROR: syntaxerror


at which point printing stops and the printers start saying TIMEOUT.
Sometimes I can reprint missing pages, but sometimes I can not print the
document at all, no matter what I do.  We are using lprng

Has anyone heard of this problem?  Please let me know.
