What are the specifications of the SS5 parallel port?  In particular
what is its maximum speed when accessed through the Solaris 2.4 driver.

1. SS5 parallel port

How fast is the SparcStation5 parallel port supposed to be?  I
sent a 1.5 MByte PostScript bitmap to my printer. This took 8
minutes to complete, appr. 3 kBytes/s.  Although my printer may
not have a blazingly fast parallel port I have measured 9
KBytes/s with a Magma parallel port in the past.

Has somebody an explanation for this ridiculous slow performance?
Surely parallel ports should be able to do better?
