CirrusPrint is a companion product to UnForm, designed to make cloud and network printing efficient and secure. Whenever print data goes across the Internet, performance and security becomes a new management headache. CirrusPrint solves several issues related to network printing.
- Performance, through patented compression technology
- Security, though SSL communication, something direct network printing does not support
- Configuration, by managing connections from the remote side of firewalls, eliminating the need for a VPN or tedious firewall configuration
With CirrusPrint, UnForm printing can be sent to remote printers more efficiently and with less printer management. Integration is simple, because CirrusPrint looks like a set of network printers to the printing application. For example, if CirrusPrint is configured to listen for Postscript print jobs for a particular remote printer on local port 9201, UnForm can be run using a command line like this:
uf90c -f acme.rul -p ps -i input-file -o tcp:localhost:9201
Likewise, CirrusPrint output can be specified within a job, in a code block, by setting the variable output$.
Or a subjob can be directed to a CirrusPrint printer as well:
