    We had the same problem. The 2600 would keep kicking the print spooler off-line. We took it off the printer server eventually and resolved never to put it on again (ran locally after that with few issues).
    Running windows 2003 for our print server.

    This baffled the hell out of me. Standard printing from a virtual 2003 32bit did exactly the same. Print, goes then nothing

    Luckily we have pcounter. Created a pcounter port and bobs your uncle it works fine.

    Good luck

    Use universal drivers it will.

    You do know if you print gray scale the colours still get used? every time a print job is sent all the colours are loaded. They are then dumped if not used. Its a massive waste if all you print is black and white. I would go with a mono instead to be honest.

    Also try AUTO for the LPR namings...
    If you need a reasonable colour laser, the Bothers aren't a bad deal, although lack SNMP feedback on some devices.
