Experience Tab

The Experience tab allows you to tweak the connection speed to optimize the performance of the connection with the remote host.

Network Tab

Select the Network Tab to configure your network settings so you will be able to connect to the 2X Remote Application Server using a proxy.

To be able to connect to a Proxy Server, check the ‘Use Proxy Server’ box. The following are different proxy connection types that can be used:

2X Client – 2X Connection Properties – Network tab

SOCKS4 – Enable this option to transparently use the service of a network firewall.

SOCKS4A – Enable this option to allow a client that cannot connect to resolve the destination host’s name to specify it.

SOCKS5 – Enable this option to be able to connect using authentication.

HTTP 1.1 – Enable this option to connect using the standard HTTP 1.1 protocol connections.

After selecting a connection type, the Proxy Host (domain name or IP Address) and port number have to be specified.

For SOCKS5 and HTTP 1.1 connections, authentication has to be enabled, check the Proxy Requires Authentication checkbox, and enter user credentials.

Check ‘Use user logon credentials’ to use the user logon credentials when authenticating with the proxy server.

Authentication Tab

On the Authentication tab the user can modify what happens when the authentication fails.  

Authentication Tab

There are three ways authentication failure can be managed:

Connect - the user can ignore the certificate of the server and still connect.

Warn - the user is alerted about the certificate and still has the ability to choose whether he wants to connect or not.

Do not connect - the user is not allowed to connect if he is not authenticated.
