You can use this procedure to enable or disable the IP header compression in Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) packets sent over dial-up or other slow links.
IP header compression involves negotiation between two computers as to what is compressed and how. It can reduce the size of packets, improving the throughput on a slower communications link.
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 that you want to modify, and then click Properties.
On the Networking tab, click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.
On the General tab, click Advanced.
Under PPP Link, select or clear the Use IP header compression check box.
