The figure below shows a zero client establishing a PCoIP session with a virtual desktop over a WAN using a View Security Server and View Connection Server pair to authenticate and connect the endpoints.
Zero Client to VDI Desktop via View Security/Connection Server
To establish the connection:
Note: For more information about configuring View Connection Servers, please refer to VMware documentation.
Note: By default, the image settings in the Configure PCoIP image quality levels PCoIP session variable are used to adjust the image quality. However, if you enable the Use image settings from zero client if available parameter in this variable, the image settings you have configured in the zero client's AWI Image page are used instead.
In View 5.2 onwards, image settings are immediately applied when you configure them and then click Apply. This is true whether you are using the image settings from the zero client (i.e., Use image settings from zero client if available is enabled) or from the Configure PCoIP image quality levels PCoIP session variable (i.e., Use image settings from zero client if available is not enabled).
