Important Notes and Requirements
- This release of PCoIP Management Console is only intended to be deployed in a secured environment. Any management exposure to unsecured endpoints should be performed through a reverse proxy.
- This release of PCoIP Management Console must not be accessible from unsecured networks, such as the open Internet. Making this release of PCoIP Management Console accessible from the open Internet is an unsupported use of the product and will void any warranty.
- PCoIP Management Console version 19.05 cannot import databases from versions of PCoIP Management Console before version 2.0. However, migration instructions are available through the administrators' guide for moving your deployment from earlier versions of PCoIP Management Console to PCoIP Management Console version 19.05, and for importing profiles from earlier versions to version 19.05.

When migrating from Management Console 2.x to 3.0, if there are profiles that contain zero client firmware 6.0.0, then the settings data of the endpoint will be dropped from the Management Console. The information will repopulate the next time the endpoint reports its current settings back to the Management Console.
