IT recently renamed one of the print servers and this is causing IPS files to open very slowly. Is there a time out setting that can be adjusted or some way to get the IPS files to open more quickly even though the printer cannot be found?
Try IP_ORG_ALLOW_LISTED_PRINTERS_ONLY=true (in ip.cfg). This variable will only recognize printers actually listed in Devices and Printers. If the printer stored in the ips file is not listed in Devices and Printers, the user will get presented with the dialog stating the printer is not valid, select a valid printer.
