apologies for the delay but I finally did as you requested. I deleted
the printer and reinstalled following the instructions you posted.
There was no difference in behavior. It will print a small page fine
but anything larger (image rich web page) causes the printer to lock up.
also as you requested, I tried the USB interface and a like the network
interface, it failed exactly the same way. It can print a test sheet
but it fails printing a larger document.
I ran ethereal and it had a tcp window full message on the last packet
sent. the raw data is at: http://harvee.org/test/ipp_capture 3.3 mb
