I have found a workaround by installing a terminal server and having the
app work within the lan - browsing the database is ok, only when
printing to the local printer it takes about 30-40 sec

however, I would like to find out what is the cause for this behaviour

as shown by testparm, wins is enabled

I will try to enter the machine in /etc/hosts and see if I get some
