Configuring PCoIP Management Console Remote Management

Remote Endpoint Management works by requiring a reverse proxy in the DMZ of the network and is configured by accessing the REMOTE CONFIGURATION page located by browsing PCoIP Management Console SETTINGS > REMOTE. Here you will find four configurable settings.

  • Internal Address: Here you enter the internally published FQDN or IP address of the PCoIP Management Console. This is how "local" devices access the PCoIP Management Console.

  • External Address: This address will lead to the reverse proxy. In this field you will enter the externally published FQDN or IP address of the reverse proxy. This is how "remote" devices will access the reverse proxy.

  • External Certificate Fingerprint: Enter the Reverse Proxy Server's certificate SHA-256 fingerprint. Endpoints may require the fingerprint of the certificate used for external access.

  • Local IP Address Ranges: Here you enter the IPv4 address ranges used within the corporate network. This will enable the PCoIP Management Console to identify local devices as opposed to remote devices.

Once your remote devices have checked in with the PCoIP Management Console, you can view the ENDPOINTS page, and see that the IPv4 ADDRESS column will show the IP address of the endpoint as seen by the PCoIP Management Console. In the case of a remote endpoint, this will be the public IP address.

The INTERNAL IPv4 column will show the address assigned to the endpoint itself. In the case of a remote endpoint this will be the address assigned by the NAT or DHCP server of the remote endpoint.

The CONNECTED BY column will display either REMOTE or LOCAL based on where in the network the endpoint is in relation to the PCoIP Management Console.
