Print rendering may occur either on the client or on the print server, depending on your actual configuration. You can check whether a print job is rendered on the client side or on the server side by pausing the print queue and checking the properties of the print job. If the data type of the print job is EMF, print rendering occurs on the server side. If the data type is RAW, print rendering occurs on the client side. For more information about the rendering mechanism, download and refer to the "Windows Point and Print Technical Overview" document on the following Microsoft Web site:
