You can have as wide and varied a range of printing needs as you have business needs. Learn about the available SAPSprint options — what they are and what they do — so you can help your organization meet its specific printing needs.
Key Concept

Secure Network Communications (SNC) integrates an external security product with SAP systems. SNC protects the data communication paths between client and server components of SAP systems that use a Remote Function Call (RFC) or dialog (DIAG) protocol.

You can configure a number of SAPSprint options to meet special requirements regarding job processing, print infrastructure, and security. I’ll explain all possible configuration parameters, giving the details of each option while clarifying their relationship to one another. I’ll also show you how to set the option values and where they are stored.

Assuming you have installed SAPSprint, understand how it works, and what it consists of, you are ready to take this next step. If you have not already, I recommend that you read my article “Get the Most Out of SAPSprint for Server-Based Printing in Microsoft Windows,” which was posted to the SAP Professional Journal knowledgebase in April 2009. It provides information on the installation of SAPSprint and the solid foundation that enables you to get the most from this article.
