Direct RDP connections are not longer blocked by default

without comments

Since Virtual Desktop Manager 2.1 the VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure got a default setting which blocks direct RDP connections to the virtual desktops. When a user tries to connect to the desktop with a standard Microsoft RDP client he will get a message stating: Access denied. In case that there was a requirement for connections from non-View/VDM clients the administartor needed to change a registry parameter to enable the access.

With View 3 the direct access is not longer blocked by default but can be reconfigured when needed.

On the View Server in C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\Extras\GroupPolicyFiles is a ADM file (vdm_agent.adm) stored with which you can easily reconfigure the setting.


It’s also possible to change/create the key directly in the Windows Registry.
