We are a printing shop. We have an Imagerunner C3220 network as a printer. We use graphic programs to create direct from file output to the Imagerunner. One of the programs we use alot is Freehand MX. When we send a file from Freehand to the printer using the PCL Driver we are experiencing difficulties. The document has only 1 page. When we send a 1 page document via the PCL driver and set the copies to 100, the driver spools 100 different documents instead of only one for 100 copies. What can we do
correct this? The time for spooling runs into hours.

what drivers are you using? try both PCL and UFRII. also, check thru WWW interface(will be faster) if there's a department managment turned on. i it is, disable it.
i assume you are creating local tcp/ip port with printer ip, raw mode, port 9100 and device is canon network printer. also did you noticed is windows discovers the device as canon network printer, raw mode etc, or you have to enter it manually? if it can't discover it, there's some connection problem.
The answer depends upon the printer controller that your 3220 has.
There are at least 3 controllers & probably twice as many versions for the assorted printer controllers.
The key is do you have a Fiery (Little white box hanging on the back) or does the network connect directly into the NIC on the upper left corner of the copier.
Drivers with -C1 or -C2 connote a Fiery printer driver.
I would advise using the PS drivers if this is the case as the Fiery is much better at PS than PCL.
Another way to tell if Fiery is on copier is scroll to right on LCD panel & see if there is a "Printer" screen. If so you can go in to "functions" "Print Pages" & print a "Configuration" page. this will show you the network ip#. Put the # in your web browser (no http:// etc needed) & you can download the correct drivers for Mac / PC right from the device. If no Fiery is on the device stick with PCL5C drivers as they are usually the best for Canon PDL board print controllers.
you can try to use the postscript driver, it should proccess it better. If you need to use pcl driver change the driver setup... under the properites of the driver click port tab... click config port....click lpr and in the Queue name type...print
