You can use this procedure to enable or disable the use of software compression on your Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) links.
Software compression reduces the size of PPP packets to improve throughput.
Any user account can be used to complete this procedure.
If you want to modify the connection you are currently using, disconnect from the server.
Right-click the connection you want to modify, and then click Properties.
On the Options tab, click PPP Settings.
Select or clear the Enable software compression check box.
