Net Use Command is Slow

Added 05/03/02  - Article ID#: K000040


In some situations the "Net Use LPT1:" command completes after a 10-20 second delay.  This can occur when the Novell Client for Windows 2000/XPis used to capture a Windows Shared Printer.  This delay can be eliminated as follows:

  1. If using a Netware server with the Novell Client, use Novell Print Queues not Windows Shared Printers.  The Net Use command completes quickly when capturing Novell Print queues under the Novell Client for Windows 2000/XP. 
  2. If using Windows Shared Printers with a Novell Server, install the Microsoft Client for Novell Netware that comes with Windows 2000/XP. The Net Use command will complete quickly.  However, the Microsoft Client can cause other problems on your Novell Network.
Note: If the printer is physically connected to a Windows 2000 or Windows XP workstation, the slow printing issue may still have to be fixed with REGEDT32 as described above.
