AWI: Amazon WorkSpaces¶
Select the Amazon WorkSpaces session connection type from the Configuration > Session page to configure the client to connect directly to your Amazon WorkSpaces desktop through multi-factor authentication when connecting with PCoIP Zero Clients on firmware 6.0 or newer. This connection type removes the need to deploy and manage the PCoIP Connection Manager for Amazon WorkSpaces in order to connect PCoIP Zero Clients to Amazon WorkSpaces.
The connection manager determines the security requirements. Amazon WorkSpaces session type uses an Amazon connection manager which requires multi-factor authentication when connecting to Amazon WorkSpaces.
AWI Session Connection type – Amazon WorkSpaces
The following parameters can be found in the AWI Session tab when the Amazon WorkSpaces connection type is selected with the advanced tab showing.
AWI Amazon WorkSpaces
|AWS Registration Code||Enter the registration code from the invitation email sent after creating your Amazon WorkSpace.|
|AWS Connection Name||Enter a name for this registered Amazon WorkSpace instance.|
|Desktop Name to Select||Enter the desktop name used by the client when starting a session.
This field is case-insensitive.
|Certificate Check Mode||Select the level of verification performed on the certificate presented by the connection server:
|Certificate Check Mode Lockout||When enabled, prevents users from changing the Certificate Check Mode settings from the OSD.|
|Auto Connect||This field determines the client’s auto connect behavior after startup:
After enabling Auto Connect, the client must be power-cycled for the change to take effect.
|Connection Server Cache Mode||This field determines whether a connection server is dynamically added to the Server drop-down menu on the OSD Connect page when a user types in a valid server URI, or whether it appears in a read-only list for the user to select.
|Auto Launch If Only One Desktop||When enabled, users are automatically connected to a provisioned desktop after user credentials are entered.
This feature only applies to users who are entitled to a single desktop. It does not apply to users entitled to multiple virtual desktops.
|Enable Peer Loss Overlay||When enabled, the 'Network Connection Lost' overlay appears on the display(s) when a loss of network connectivity is detected. Normal hypervisor scheduling delays can falsely trigger this message.|
|Enable Preparing Desktop Overlay||When enabled, the 'Preparing Desktop' overlay appears on the display(s) when users log in.
This overlay provides assurance that login is proceeding if the desktop takes more than a few seconds to appear.
|Enable Session Disconnect Hotkey||When enabled, users can press the Ctrl+Alt+F12 hotkey sequence to pop up the 'Zero Client Control Panel' overlay, which lets them disconnect the current session on the workstation or power off the workstation.
|PCoIP Utility Bar Mode||When enabled, the PCoIP Utility Bar appears at the top of the primary display when a user is in session and moves the cursor directly under the bar. The utility bar can be used to disconnect a session or to shut down a remote workstation. For Direct to Host session connection types, Local Cursor and Keyboard must be enabled in order for the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client to process mouse events for the utility bar. For all connection types, the mouse must be locally connected (that is, not bridged).
|Session Negotiation Cipher Suites||Configure the Transport Layer Security (TLS) cipher to use for negotiating the TLS session between the PCoIP client and the PCoIP host.
|Disconnect Message Filter||This field lets you control what type of messages appear when a session is disconnected. There are three categories:
Information: User- or administrator-initiated actions affecting the session:
You can choose to display:
|Enable DSCP||When enabled, the device populates the Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) field in the IP header, enabling intermediate network nodes to prioritize PCoIP traffic accordingly.|
|Enable Congestion Notification||When enabled, transport congestion notification is enabled to enable PCoIP endpoints to react accordingly if an intermediate network node sets the congestion notification bit in either the IP header or PCoIP transport header. For more information about the PCoIP transport header, see PCoIP Packet Format.|
