PCoIP Standard Agent for Linux 23.04

This guide is intended for administrators who are deploying the Standard Agent for Linux as part of HP Anyware. It assumes thorough knowledge of Linux conventions and networking concepts, including firewall configuration.

About the Standard Agent for Linux

The Standard Agent for Linux is part of HP Anyware. It enables users to deliver virtual Linux desktops or custom applications to remote users. End users connect to their virtual desktops with a PCoIP client, either directly or via a connection broker.

Typical end users of the PCoIP Standard Agent for Linux include task workers and knowledge workers who need a Linux desktop, but do not require high-end GPU-powered graphics applications.

A deployed Standard Agent for Linux requires these components:

  • A host machine which provides the desktop to remote clients. The host must be a virtual machine in a data center or in the cloud. See System Requirements for more information.
  • The agent software installed on the host machine.
