Slow printer access

I know this has been discussed before, and I have tried everything I have found as far as fixing it.

Windows 2000 workstations, office 2000, NDPS printers on the workstations, client 4.91SP2. Netware 6.5 SP4, NDPS Mgr 3.01t, broker 3.0.11

Anything that accesses the printer, i.e going to envelopes and labels in Word, looking at the properties of the printer anywhere, produces a long delay before responding with the appropriate "box". Then it is OK for a minute or so of idle time before it happens again. Looking at a packet trace, I see long delays processing a DNS query for the tree name??? I added an entry for the tree pointing to one of our servers, in the hosts file of the DDNS server. It helped some, but many still experience the slowness. Is there anything else I can do??

Cancel post. Putting the tree name in did in fact solve that problem. Thanks!

Jim,

I noticed you said that you added a DNS entry for your Tree name using one
of your servers. Did you just point it to anyserver in your tree or the
master replica holder? I am having a slow dialogue box issues and was
wondering if you could clarify if any server would do or does it need to
be a replica holding server?
