Menu path: Devices > Printer > ThinPrint

ThinPrint allows the bandwidth provided for the transfer of print jobs to be reduced depending on the resources available. The ThinPrint client prints either on printers connected to a local interface (serial, parallel or USB), on an LPD network printer or on a CUPS printer defined on the thin client.

In this area, you will find the following parameters:

Port Number: Port number via which the ThinPrint daemon will communicate (default: 4000).

Make sure that the port number on the ThinPrint client and the ThinPrint server is the same (communication will otherwise not be possible).

Bandwidth: A bandwidth value (in bits per second) which is lower than or equal to the value specified on the ThinPrint server. A higher value, the disabling of client control or no entry at all means that the ThinPrint server values will be used (default: 0).

Open Printer Interval: Maximum waiting time in seconds if a printer is unavailable (default: 165).

Open Printer Tries: Number of attempts to contact a printer in order to start a print job (default: 100).
