Configuring Compression on Edge Servers

Topic Last Modified: 2009-03-04

Compressing connections between servers and clients can improve performance on your network by reducing the bandwidth used by Office Communications Server 2007 R2. You can use the Compression tab of Edge Server Properties to configure compression for the Edge Server, including the following:

  • Server compression:
    • Request compression on outgoing server-to-server connections. Use this option to compress outgoing traffic between servers.
    • Maximum number of server-to-server connections. If you enable compression, you must specify the maximum allowable number of connections to other servers. The valid range of values is from 0 through 65535; the default value is 1024.
  • Client compression:
    • Enable compression on client-to-server connections. Use this option to compress incoming traffic between clients and the servers in the pool.

To configure compression on an Edge Server

  1. On the Edge Server, open Computer Management.

  2. In the console tree, expand Services and Applications, right-click Office Communications ServerĀ 2007 R2, and then click Properties.

  3. On the Compression tab, specify the appropriate server and client options.
