In the event that printer shares are connected to computers in remote offices, the print data can be compressed in the opposite direction in addition to the normal ThinPrint compression – between the computers in the remote offices (where the applications are running) and the central print server. This print data compression of the shares is called ThinShare; it is available in the Driver Free Printing and V-Layer print modes.
- Here you can choose whether ThinShare should be enabled by default for all new printer objects to be created that use the Output Gateway as driver.
Confirm with Apply.
