PCoIP Remote Workstation Card Firmware 5.0.1 Release Notes¶
Remote Workstation Card Firmware 5.0.1 is a firmware release for Tera2 Remote Workstation Cards (not PCoIP Zero Clients).
This release is a feature release with functional changes and bug fixes over release 4.9.0. These release notes provide a summary of key feature additions, compatibility notes, resolved issues, and known issues for this release.
Note: only Workstation Access subscribers are eligible to receive this release.
What's New in This Release
Support for Management Console 3.1+
The Remote Workstation Card is now compatible with PCoIP Management Console 3.1 and higher. This permits the use of a single management tool for both remote workstation cards and zero clients when using modern firmware. Management Console 3.1 will allow peering of Zero Clients with Remote Workstation Cards.
Removal of Connection Management Interface (CMI)
CMI is no longer available in the Remote Workstation Card. As a result, the Remote Workstation Card is no longer compatible with PCoIP Management Console 1.x, and it cannot be brokered. The re-addition of brokering by way of the PCoIP Broker Protocol is planned for a future release.
The Remote Workstation Card Firmware session security mode has been improved.
The minimum TLS version required for establishing a PCoIP session is now TLS 1.1.The minimum TLS version required to access the Administrative Web Interface (AWI) is now TLS 1.2.
The Administrative Web Interface certificate is now a SHA-256 certificate with 3072-bit RSA encryption.
Now reports the endpoint FQDN instead of "Teradici Corp"
Time Zone Database update
GMT time zones have been replaced with the 2016j IANA time zone database.
Important Notes and Requirements
- Deployments without VMware brokering, but with CMI based brokering such as Leostream or custom solutions should continue to use the previous version of PCoIP Management Console 1.10.8 and PCoIP Remote Workstation card firmware 4.9
- Remote Workstation Cards with firmware 5.x can only be managed by PCoIP Management Console 3.1 or higher.
- If you are upgrading your Tera2 firmware from a 4.x release:
- Use PCoIP Management Console 1.10.3 through 1.10.8 or the the Remote Workstation Cards's AWI to upgrade to firmware 5.0 or higher.
- You must upgrade from firmware version 4.5.1.
- This download includes an .all file for use by the Administrative Web Interface (AWI) and a .pcoip file for use by PCoIP Management Console 3.1 and higher.
- The .pcoip file contains zero client firmware 5.0.1 for Tera2 Remote Workstation Cards only.
