Remote Printer Inactivity Time-out (pcAnywhere) (All Windows)

Use this setting if a print job is being separated into multiple jobs during remote printing. This item sets the inactivity time-out for the remote printing facility.

If there is no activity on the port being captured for remote printing, pcANYWHERE32 assumes the printing job is done and stop spooling. This may cause a print job to be separated into multiple jobs if there is a long delay during the printing. This DWORD registry item allows you to adjust the length in seconds of the inactivity on the captured port before pcAnywhere assumes a print job has stopped spooling.

The default is 30 seconds. To adjust the inactivity time-out, add the registry item as a DWORD set to the number of seconds you want.
