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

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.

  • 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
