Connecting Remotely

PCoIP sessions between clients and hosts can operate in a wide area network (WAN) that traverses the Internet. You can connect clients and hosts remotely using the following methods:

  • Configuring network address translation (NAT) devices at both ends to implement the necessary IP address and port translation. This method applies only to Tera2 devices that employ UDP-encapsulated IPsec ESP encryption.

  • Setting up a VPN to connect two trusted networks over an intermediate untrusted network.

  • Using the PCoIP Management Console to remotely manage connections using a reverse proxy. This type of deployment is described in the Remote Endpoint section of the PCoIP Management Console Administrators' Guide.

The scenarios listed below describe some common ways you can connect PCoIP endpoints remotely.

  • Scenario 1: Connecting a PCoIP Zero Client to a Remote Workstation Card.
  • Scenario 2: Connecting multiple PCoIP Zero Clients to multiple Remote Workstation Cards.
  • Scenario 3: PCoIP Zero Client to Remote Workstation Card via Hardware VPN.
