Port Compression Analysis: A (hidden) math problem revealed
Wed, Mar 5th 2014 5:22a Michael Hafner Port compression was originally introduced to IBM Notes/Domino 6 as a way to significantly reduce the amount of network traffic sent/received by IBM Notes and Domino devices. To enable port compression on servers, simply go to the Server tab in the Domino Administrator, while on Notes clients the same can be done via a setup or desktop policy setting. Port compression must be enabled on both sides of a network connection in order for it to work, but that’s a pretty small price to pay for a [read] Keywords: domino
