In the Connection settings area, type the Primary Connection name or IP address. This should be the name or IP of the desktop you want to connect to. The ‘Alias’ will give the connection a display name for better readability.  

NOTE: In order to connect through the 2X Secure Client Gateway you need to set the Port number that was configured on the 2X Secure Client Gateway Port in the Connection Settings Page. (Default Gateway Port 80)

Logon Panel

Experience Tab

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

If you are using a connection to a remote computer in a local network that runs at 100Mbit or up, it is usually safe to have all of the experience options turned on.

Remote Desktop Connection Properties – Experience tab.

Network Tab

In the Network Tab you may configure network settings to be able to connect to 2X Remote Application Server using a proxy.

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

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

Remote Desktop Connection Properties – Network tab.

Authentication Tab

On the Authentication tab you are able to configure the remote desktop authentication settings.  If authentication fails, you can choose from Connect, Warn or Do Not Connect.

Remote Desktop Connection Properties - 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.

Advanced Settings Tab

Remote Desktop Connection Properties – Advanced Settings

Connect to console – Enable this option to connect to the console session of the Remote Desktop.

Display the connection bar when in full screen mode – When enabled, the RDP connection bar will show at the top of the page.
