Delayed printing from AS/400 on Windows 2003 network server

We changed our print server from a Windows 2000 to a Windows 2003 print server. Now when we use print screen from the AS/400 there is a delay in printing. We are printing to a networked HP laser printer.
If nothing has changed on the iSeries side (which is what you imply) then the timing problems are definitely related to the Windows 2003 print server. The most likely cause is a difference in the default amount of time for 2003 to accept the incoming connection. Have you had the Windows network people look into this for you?
