Remote Endpoint Management (Enterprise) OverviewΒΆ

Remote endpoint management allows PCoIP administrators to maintain central management of endpoints when they are no longer on-premises. Remote management is avialable with the Enterprise version of Management Console therefore it must be licensed with a trial or enterprise license. See Managing Licenses Online for more information on licensing. Administrators will also need to deploy a reverse proxy and ensure the network connection between the PCoIP Management Console and the remote endpoint is using IPv4 and has a latency of approximately 100ms or less.

Reverse Proxy Configuration
Reverse Proxy Overview

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.

An endpoint is treated as a remote endpoint 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.

To complete a remote management deployment, requires the configuration of the management console, remote proxy, endpoint and if desired an auto-provisioning DNS SRV record which is recommended.

Each configuration can be found in the following topics:
