    Hi

    I am new to ThinClients and trying to find out where they could suit us apart from simply running RDS sessions, one case apart from the RDS thing is this:

    I have a Windows 2008R2 Terminal Server with RemoteApps. Is there a way to run those remote apps directly from the ThinOS client as a RDP session?

    If I open the shortcuts to those RemoteApps in notepad they show some odd strings  like:

    redirectclipboard:i:1
    redirectposdevices:i:0
    redirectprinters:i:1
    redirectcomports:i:1
    redirectsmartcards:i:1
    devicestoredirect:s:*
    drivestoredirect:s:*
    redirectdrives:i:1
    session bpp:i:32
    prompt for credentials on client:i:1
    span monitors:i:1
    use multimon:i:1
    remoteapplicationmode:i:1
    server port:i:3389
    allow font smoothing:i:1
    promptcredentialonce:i:1
    authentication level:i:2
    gatewayusagemethod:i:2
    gatewayprofileusagemethod:i:0
    gatewaycredentialssource:i:0
    full address:s:10.5.121.120
    alternate shell:s:||AfwWorkplaceApplication (3)
    remoteapplicationprogram:s:||AfwWorkplaceApplication (3)
    gatewayhostname:s:
    remoteapplicationname:s:YAMAL 4 screens
    remoteapplicationcmdline:s:-s=”{C51095DE-892D-496E-B07B-BEDBEB666704}” -e=”{F6590D3D-7BB4-4430-A21E-62C1F2A1518A}” -w=”{BAC989E6-9A25-4EE8-8191-3E7596105083}” -WS

     

    Kind regards

    No, this is not possible. You would have to use the Broker (RDWeb).

    This is where that “broker” things sucks. Especially if you move to Windows 2016 / 2019 where you’re driven to create a deployment etc…

    It’s not straightforward to keep things simple (but it’s possible. You can add the RDSH role to your servers, then you can edit the registry manually to create your RemoteApps)

    When you servers are Virtualized, which is most likely nowadays, the “high availability” is delegated to the underlying virtualization infrastructure. I don’t need a broker, unless I would need “ultra high availability”. In that latter case you must evidently have two redundant brokers. Making things even more complex.
