Gateways tab

PC-Duo Host Terminal Services Settings

The root Host for must be configured to report to one or more PC-Duo Enterprise Gateways; it is through these connections that terminal services session Hosts will be reached. Note: That connection status icon next to Gateway entries and the Host Workstation ID are generic in the root Host template. These will be replaced by actual icons and values when the Host service is started in the terminal session.

For security purposes, all connection attempts can be forced to go through the specified Gateways by selecting Permit connection only through listed Gateways on the Gateways tab. With this option, administrators can take advantage of Gateway-based security policies and prevent unauthorized connections via peer-to-peer or unlisted Gateways. The list of valid Gateways to which the Host should report can be managed with the following options:

  • "Add Gateway"
  • "Edit Gateway"
  • "Remove Gateway"
  • "Move Up"
  • "Move Down"
  • "Details"
  • "Resend Status"
  • "View Error"

The Host Workstation ID is a unique identifier generated at installation time, which the PC-Duo Enterprise Gateway uses for reporting and reference purposes.

Screen Tab

For Terminal Services Hosts, only user-mode screen capture is available.

User-mode screen capture (UMSC): Uses user-mode code to capture screen data. Supported on Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008. Runs as a 32-bit x86 user mode code, but can capture either x86 or x64 systems. Only supported screen capture technology for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and in Terminal Services Sessions (any OS).

When user-mode screen capture is selected, the amount of bandwidth used to capture and transmit remote desktop screen can be restricted or "throttled" by reconfiguring a user-mode screen capture profile. The default profile is "High Quality/High Bandwidth" but other profiles corresponding to smaller bandwidth limits are available. See Bandwidth throttling for more information. The Screen tab for Terminal Services Hosts indicates that user-mode screen capture algorithm is the only option, and also indicated the preferred user-mode screen capture profile.

Macros for Terminal Services sessions Hosts

The following macros are available for customizing station name for Hosts running in Terminal Services sessions. They should be applied in the Terminal Services Hosts Control Panel template but can also be specified in the root Host Control Panel.

%CLIENTNAME%Machine name that the client of the TS session has connected from, or the name of the server machine (same as %NAME%) if the session is not a TS instance.
%CLIENTNAME%IP address that the client of the TS session has connected from, or the IP address of the server machine (same as %ADDR%) if the session is not a TS instance.
%CLIENTNAME%TS session number. This will be 0 (zero) for the root Host instance and non-zero for TS instances.
