  1. Run regedit.exe
  2. Open the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\triCerat\Simplify Licensing
  3. Add a new REG_DWORD value named ConnectionLimit.
  4. Set the value data to the max simultaneous connections. The default value is 256. Setting this value to 0 will disable the limit, allowing unlimited connections.

    titleTricerat Recommendation

    If 256 is insufficient, Tricerat recommends increasing the value to 512 or 1024. Disabling the limit is generally safe but removes any protection of connection counts consuming the system.

  5. You must re-start the service before the new setting takes effect.

Additional Information

For a print server, a connection occurs during a user login and during a print job. During logon, a connection is made to the print server to query information about the necessary printers. During a print job, a connection is opened that sends print data to the print server. Additionally, a user opening the Advanced Print Features dialog will trigger a connection to the print server.

All connections are non-persistent, meaning that they will close as soon as the operation is finished. During login, the connection will likely only be open for a few seconds. During a print job, the connection is likely to complete within a few seconds but it can go longer depending on the size of the print job. Since these are non-persistent connections, the concern for the connection limit is simultaneous connections within a window of a few seconds.

Generally, this setting is only a concern in large environments with heavy print traffic. Only change this setting if there is behavior described in theĀ "problem" section or under advisement from Tricerat Support.
