Configuring Compression for Front End Servers
Topic Last Modified: 2009-03-06
Compressing connections between servers and clients can help improve performance on your network by reducing the bandwidth used by Office Communications Server 2007 R2. You can enable compression for outgoing server-to-server connections from servers in the pool, client-to-server connections, or both.
To configure compression for Front End Servers
Open the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 snap-in.
In the console tree, expand the forest node, and then do one of the following:
- For an Enterprise pool, expand Enterprise pools, right-click the pool, click Properties, and then click Front End Properties.
- For a Standard Edition server, expand Standard Edition servers, right-click the pool, click Properties, and then click Front End Properties.
Click the Compression tab.
On the Compression tab, do either or both of the following:
- In Server Compression, select or clear the Request compression on outgoing server-to-server connections check box. If you select this check box, in Maximum number of server-to-server connections, type a number from 0 through 65535 to specify the maximum allowable connections from the servers in this pool to other servers.
- In Client Compression, select or clear the Enable compression on client-to-server connections check box. Selecting this check box causes incoming connections between the clients and servers in the pool to be compressed.
