TSPrint

Overview

Most computers have a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) which allows users to connect a local computer (i.e home office) to a remote computer (i.e corporate location). Microsoft uses the "Remote Desktop Connection" application to make this connection.

When initiating a remote desktop connection, users can also redirect their local printers. In the Microsoft application, this feature is called "Easy Print." Easy Print allows users to send print jobs to a remote location using the print drivers on the local computer.

Avionté recommends TSPrint as an alternative to Easy Print. TSPrint works with Remote Desktop Connection to quickly transfer print jobs between local and remote systems. Because of its ability to handle large-volume print jobs, Avionté strongly recommends using TSPrint when printing large jobs such as paychecks or invoices.

    This article should contain a note that before beginning the installation process, the user should log out of current Terminal sessions.

    Hey, it looks like TS print updated their website. Can we add a blurb that they should click the download link and from there, they will see the client download? right now the site makes it sound like server or client both need a license
