Advanced ServerLink Universal Printer
The ServerLink Universal Printer option offers you a great option: freedom to print documents from any place and from any PCs. How does it work? When you select ServerLink Universal Printer, the document to print will automatically be converted into a PDF file and this PDF file will be is automatically pushed to the user workstation. Because ServerLink is based on fast Virtual Channel connections, the Universal Printer is doing an excellent job without having to map any local disk drives or any local printers. Not less than 4 advanced printing options can be chosen:
- Local PDF preview: the document will be pushed and the local PDF Reader will be opened automatically with the generated PDF file. The user will be free to print it or to save a copy on his local disk drive. The local PDF reader will be used to preview the document and any of them can be selected. At least one PDF reader needs be installed (Acrobat Reader, FoxIT, Acrobat Writer…) on the user PC.
- Printing on the user local default printer: The document will be automatically pushed to the user local default printer. The local printing driver is included in the ServerLink connection client. So, nothing special should be set on the local PC to print on the default printer.
- Selecting a local printer: The user will select one of his possible local printers as suitable. For example, he may select his local DeskJet printer for his on-going prints but he will prefer to select the first floor shared fast color printer to print his monthly reports. The local printing driver is included in the ServerLink connection client.
- Streaming mode on the default printer: for large documents, the PDF file is split into 2 pages per 2 pages transfer / print process. As a result, a 500 pages document will quickly start to print and the user will not have to wait for the total receival of 500 pages to see the first pages printed. Also, the network bandwidth witll be protected because every two pages the system rests one second.
