When you print to an Epson Stylus printer, the Epson Spool Manager may stop responding (hang), or you may receive the following error message:
Error: Printer Not Responding


This behavior can occur if you are using Epson's Stylus driver version 2.02E. In some configurations (especially over a network), the Epson spooler may not be able to communicate with the printer port.


Configure the Epson Spool Manager to use Print Manager to spool print jobs instead of using its internal spooler. For information about configuring the Epson Spool Manager, please contact Epson.
