Making a Connection from a Anyware Client

Anyware clients are remote endpoint devices available as software or firmware devices that make secure PCoIP connections to remote desktops. Once you've installed your Remote Workstation Card Agent, you will have the ability to create brokered connections from Anyware Clients to computers with a Remote Workstation Card.

For more information about Anyware client connectivity requirements and usage instructions, see the following documentation:

Managing Client Connections

All a Anyware client requires is the IP address of the remote computer where the Remote Workstation Card Agent is installed. Simply enter the IP address in the appropriate field of the Anyware client or broker. The broker is responsible for matching users to their available desktops, and then establishing the PCoIP session with their selected resource.

Remote Workstation Card Agent does not need to be configured to use brokering services since all relevant configuration is done at the broker which then communicates with the Remote Workstation Card Agent.

Brokering Options

There are several ways you can manage client connections to remote desktops.

Direct Connections

In this scenario, the Remote Workstation Card Agent acts as its own broker. You only require the IP address of the remote computer NIC to establish a PCoIP session on a properly equipped host computer and client. If using a Tera2 Zero Client, you need to use its session connection type of Anyware Connection Manager or Auto Detect.

Alternative connections

Direct connect scenarios where Remote Workstation Card Agent is not installed are not discussed in this guide.

Anyware Manager

Anyware Manager is a service, available as a cloud-based service or as an installable instance, that centrally manages PCoIP deployments. It enables highly scalable and cost-effective HP Anyware deployments by managing cloud compute costs and brokering PCoIP connections to remote Windows or Linux workstations.

Connection Manager

The Connection Manager is provided in a bundle with the Security Gateway, and allows self-managed brokering services. For information about the Connection Manager, including installation and configuration instructions, see the Connection Manager and Security Gateway documentation.

Third-party Connection Brokers

Anyware agents also support third-party connection brokers. For a current list of brokering partners, see Technology Partners on the website.
