Thin client devices connecting to Windows 2003 Server
Okidata 3410 Dot Matrix printer with Dlink DP301P+ Print Server attached to Parallel Port
If a user sends a picking ticket larger than 6 or 7 pages (not really that much data) to the Okidata printer with the attached print server, the RV120W router will completely lock up. The connection between the two routers is lost, and the router must be physically rebooted. This behaviour is fairly consistent on the larger documents described. Pick tickets of less than 6 pages print without any issues. I've examined the data stream and see nothing of consequence in the larger documents. There is no effect on the Dallas router.
An IPSEC tunnel exists between the two routers.
Any ideas on what could be causing the router to freeze?
The printer is not attached to a PC. It is attached to the network via the previously noted DLink DP301P+ print server. While I would agree that buffering could be a problem on the printer server, that does not explain why the RV120W router totally freezes.
is the printing done via multicast? is the rv unit somehow blocking it? have you tried testing sending a very large file to a PC from the remote site just to see if it is a print or data issue? if the rv unit locks up sending ANY data the we can rule out the print server.
