Managing Published Documents

Publishing a Document

To publish a document that can be accessed by users on the network, you can follow any of the following procedures:

  • Publishing a Document from a Terminal Server here.
  • Publishing a Document from a Remote PC here.
  • Publishing a Document from a Guest here.

Configuring a Published Document

When publishing a document using the wizard you have to specify all the document settings, such as where it is stored etc. These options and several others can also be configured once the document has been published.

To modify a published document, select the published document from the Published Resources tree in the Publishing category.

From the Publish From tab you can specify from which terminal servers should the published document be published as seen in the below screenshot.

Configuring the Servers a Published Document is Published From

Configuring Server Specific Document Settings

By default the settings configured in the Target (application path), Start In and Parameters apply to all servers a document is published from. In case the document is saved in a different path on one of the servers, use the Server(s) drop down menu in the Application tab to specify new settings in the Target, Start In and Parameter input fields specific for that server.

Configuring Shortcuts Options for a Published Document

Click the Shortcuts tab in the application settings and configure to enable the creation of shortcuts on the user’s desktop, shortcuts in the start folder with relative folder and shortcut in the Auto start folder. When the Auto start shortcut is enabled the application will be started when the Operating system the client is running is started.

Note: This option is not available on all operating systems.

Configuring File Extension Associations

To modify file extension association for a particular published document, click the File Extensions tab in the document settings.

Configuring File Extension Associations for a Published document

Note: A list of typically associated file extensions is automatically generated once a document is published. If you would like to modify the preconfigured list and add, remove or modify an existing entry, tick the option Associate File Extensions.

To add a new extension to the list, click Add from the Tasks drop down menu and specify the extension as shown in the below screenshot.

Configuring a new File Extension

To modify an extension’s parameters, highlight the extension and click Properties from the Tasks drop down menu.

Configuring Licensing Options for Published Documents

Click the Licensing tab to configure any of the below licensing options:

Disable session Sharing: If this option is enabled, it allows you to isolate the published application to one session. Therefore if the same application is launched twice, the multiple instances of the application will run in the same isolated session.

Allow users to start only one instance of the application: If this option is enabled, a user can only launch a single instance of the application.

Concurrent Licenses: Use this option to specify the maximum number of concurrent instances the application can run. E.g. if the license of the application allows you to  only run 10 instances of the application, set the Concurrent licences option to 10 so once such limit is reached, other users cannot initiate other instances.

If limit is exceeded: From this drop down menu you can specify what action should the Parallels 2X Remote Application Server take in case any of the above licensing configured limits has been exceeded.

Configuring Display Settings for a Published Document

Click the Display tab to configure the color depth of the published document, resolution and width and height. If these options are left as default, the client specified options will take over.

From this section you can also enable the option to wait for the Universal Printers to be redirected before the application is loaded. When enabling this option you can also configure the maximum time to wait in seconds for the Universal Printers to be redirected.
