ELP can automatically compress and decompress data streams:
Compressed data steams arriving an any ELP enabled device are automatically uncompressed, if the proper key is provided in one of the following startup sections:
All devices: The rule GLOBAL (The only place the commands can be set within PPAdmin Control Center)
By hand: Printer name (Only Software)
By hand: User name (Only Software)
By hand: Port name(Only Software)
Those devices can decrypt data streams:
- Another ELP Server
HP printers equipped with ELP
Ricoh printers equipped with IBS
AP-ELP Box (print server for LAN2USB and LAN2LAN service)
Compression rates for ASCII and LaserJet 4 Plus printer drivers for approximately 50% are possible. In average it is about 40%.
Any incoming compressed data stream is automatically decompressed and performed.
Enabling the compression is as easy as placing the ini file key COMPRESSION=ON in any rule/section, which can be launched in any triggered section, except those ones, using the out_search keys.
