Besides ECP and/or EPP, the other option should be just plain
Bi-Directional.

The ECP/EPP/SPP or Bi-directional refers to the BIOS settings. Windows
generally reads this, then sets itself to the appropriate mode. A dot
matrix printer can be painfully slow, unless it's built in fonts (if it has
any) are used.
Most dot matrix printers (Usually older models) are happy with SPP or
hopefully ECP.
Bi directional can be a variation on SPP, or in addition to it.
This whole thing gets deeper than I want to go, except to say that things
have actually gotten simpler.

IMHO port settings mean nothing with this printer, I've tried them all.
First and foremost, make sure you aren't printing at 360 X 360 DPI. At that
setting print quality is very good and print speed very low. Change the
setting to 360 X 180 or, if you can stand it, 180 X 180. I think each step
down in quality increases printing speed exponentially.

Now, if your report could print in pure text mode, when the printer's
internal fonts are used, you'd beat any printer for text!
