Configuring the PCoIP Agent

You can configure the PCoIP agent, and optimize PCoIP protocol behavior for local network conditions, by adjusting Windows GPO variables.

The variables are in admx template files, which are imported automatically by the agent installer.

Template files on domain controllers are not automatically installed

Template files are not automatically installed on domain controllers. You must manually import the files into the domain controller's Group Policy Editor.
