Choose how users will connect

Remote Access is compatible with Windows Remote Desktop Protocol. Any user can connect locally or remotely with a standard Remote Desktop Connection client (mstsc.exe) or any RDP compatible client. To fully benefit from the advanced features in Remote Access (Seamless client, RemoteApp, Universal Printer…) you can use a generated client or the Remote Access Web Portal.

There are multiple connection options for your users:

  • Classic Remote Desktop Connection (MSTSC.EXE).
  • Portable TSplus RDP client which will display a windowed environment for your remote connection that you can minimize in the Windows taskbar.
  • TSplus Seamless client which will only display applications and no desktop.
  • MS RemoteAPP client which will display application using the native MS RemoteApp.
  • Windows client over the TSplus Web Portal.
  • HTML5 client over the TSplus Web Portal.
