VDI connection over internet fails

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Why cannot connect a virtual desktop over the internet?

Check settings in administration module off View manager. Go to VDI server and fill in the Outside URL with port number. Do not check direct access to desktop. This is your problem, because there will be not a tunnel over the VDI server.
With PCoIP you must select direct and connect with a VPN to the system.
