As of firmware 4.1.0, Tera2 zero clients and remote workstation cards use UDP-encapsulated IPsec format. Because this encapsulation type supports IP address and port number translation, it is not necessary to set up a VPN when these devices connect remotely. To connect devices with earlier firmware versions, see Zero Client to Remote Workstation Card Using a Hardware VPN.
Note: All remote workstation card scenarios assume you have the PCoIP host software installed on the host PC or workstation. For details, please see “PCoIP® Host Software for Windows User Guide” (TER1008001) in the Teradici Support Documentation Center. Please refer to Connection Prerequisites for other conditions that may apply.
Note: The IP addresses in the following figures are intended as example addresses only.
The figure below shows a Tera2 zero client establishing a PCoIP session with a remote workstation card over a WAN.

You can also have multiple zero clients and remote workstation cards connected behind NAT devices, as shown in the next figure.
Note: In this scenario, an enterprise-level NAT device is required in both the source and destination networks.
