-This article describes how to connect a Windows 10 PC with a printer queue provided by the GWDG via gwdg-print3.gwdg.de. gwdg-print3 is a server with Windows 2019 as its operating system. We recommend gwdg-print3 to users who are setting up a GWDG printer queue for the first time (e.g. on a new PC). If you have already set up GWDG printer queues using the old gwdg-print, there will be no change for you because these old printer queues will continue to work.+This article describes how to connect a Windows 10 PC to [[en:​services:​general_services:​print_scan_services:​standard_printing:​start|printer queue provided by the GWDG]] via gwdg-print3.gwdg.de. gwdg-print3 is a server with Windows 2019 as its operating system.

-If your print job does not print, please check that the print job is not larger than 2GB. Internally, the size of a print job is stored as a 32-bit integer variable. With 32 bits you can only "​count"​ up to 2GB. Larger print jobs get stuck and clog the queue. The only thing that helps is to delete the print job and reprint it in a lower resolution or split it up in more documents.+Our printserver uses the so called Line Printer Daemon Protocol to transmit ​print jobs. Internally, the size of a print job is stored as a 32-bit integer variable. With 32 bit integer ​you can only "​count"​ up to 2GB. Larger print jobs might block the queue or produce an empty page. The only thing that helps is to delete the print job and reprint it in a lower resolution or split it into seperate ​documents.
