PCoIP Management Console Remote Endpoint Management (Enterprise)

The PCoIP Management Console must be licensed with a trial or enterprise license to use remote device management. See Managing Licenses Online in the administrators' guide for more information on licensing. You will also need to deploy a reverse proxy and ensure the network connection between the PCoIP Management Console and the remote endpoint has a latency of approximately 100ms or less.

Tip: How the PCoIP Management Console determines if an endpoint is local or remote.

The PCoIP Management Console will treat an endpoint as a local endpoint except when it is:

  • explicitly connecting to the external interface of the PCoIP Management Console
  • determined to be behind a reverse proxy
  • behind a NAT and has a different internal IP address from its external IP address.

The PCoIP Management Console determines if an endpoint is behind a reverse proxy by inspecting the websocket upgrade header for the presence of X-Forwarded-For, X-Real-IP or Forwarded information.

Administration of remote endpoints requires the configuration of the proxy, the PCoIP Management Console, and the remote endpoint. Each configuration can be found in the following topics:
