I have a dedicated windows 2008 server I use as a file server and print server at my home office.

Whenever I print documents from one of my clients, I see the document hit the queue on the server immediately (says its in "printing" status), but it takes FOREVER to print out (like over 5 minutes). But, printing the same document locally from the server takes 4 seconds.

It's an HP 1006P laser printer. I am running 32-bit 2008 Server. Installed the Vista drivers ( updated to latest version ).

Tried updating the drivers on the clients too and no dice.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot?
