Stack timeout

Problems may be encountered with printers connected via Axis Boxes to the network, producing errors with some of the prints, usually larger prints. The printer prints a page with the following text: "ERROR: timeout, OFFENDING COMMAND: timeout, STACK:".

The solution is quite easy. The port speed of the LPT port used on the Axis Box is probably set to "Standard". Set it to "High Speed" and timeouts don't occur anymore.
