Thank you for your kind reply.

I have tried a couple of ways as you explained, and it looks barely
fine. (The printing job goes to the printer and it prints out the job
but very slow. Moreover, CPU consumption rate goes upto 90% when the
printing job is active.)

The printer is 'Xerox Document Centre C360', and Xerox does not
officially support Linux/FreeBSD driver for this printer. The printer
has its own static IP address (it is a networked printer). I have
tested this printer over Windows2000 and works perfect.

Should I simply stay on my current setting for Linux?
