I working in an envirment with serveral hundred print queues. I connect to a
print server running windows 2000 from my xp desktop. When I view the print
queues from my desktop, they are constanly refreshing every 5 seconds or so,
It drives me crazy. It doesn't happend when i'm on the server nor did it
happen when I was running 2000 profesional. Is there any way to cahnge the
refresh rate? Please help!!!!

The client is in a polling mode for print job notifications. The spooler
defaults to polling when the Windows Firewall is enabled but the File and
Print sharing ports are not enabled (the default when not sharing files or a
printer on a client). Enable this exception and disconnect from the
server. I'll typically stop the spooler and restart on the client before
opening the remote machine.
