      Print Spooling

  • 79. 
    In __________________, documents are loaded into a buffer (usually an area on a disk), and then the printer pulls them off the buffer at its own rate. Because the documents are in a buffer where they can be accessed by the printer, the user is free to perform other operations on the computer while the printing takes place in the background. __________________ also lets users place a number of print jobs in a queue instead of waiting for each one to finish before specifying the next one.

    Printer Port: The means by which a print device connects to a print server (parallel port, serial port, or to the printer's NIC). Traditional parallel ports are quickly being replaced by USB ports for printing devices. In this respect, many printers can be configured in the same way that most plug and play devices are. All parallel connections must adhere to the IEEE standard 1284. You should look at your printer configuration to see which mode your printer requires. The five modes addressed in the IEEE standard are:
    • A. 

      Nibble, Normal, Native, Compatibility, EPP

    • B. 

      Native, Threaded, Linear, Nibble, Normal
