2X Publishing Agent Connection Settings

The 2X Publishing Agent connection settings can be accessed from the Connection category available in the system menu.

Configuring Publishing Agent Authentication Settings

Enforcing Authentication

By default all users are required to authenticate the connection against a Parallels 2X Remote Application Server before accessing any published application or desktop. You can disable such requirement by disabling the option Always require user credentials for application list from the Authentication tab.

Configuring Authentication

Once authentication is enforced you can also configure the Parallels 2X Remote Application Server to authenticate users against a specific domain by entering the domain name in the Domain input field. Alternatively use the Browse button to select a domain or workgroup available on the network.

Note: If the option Use client domain if specified is disabled the domain name specified by the administrator will be automatically populated in the Parallels 2X Client.

Recommendation: After changing the domain names or some other authentication related changes   click the Clear cached session Ids button.

Force clients to use NetBIOS credentials

If this option is enabled, the Parallels 2X Client will replace the username with the NetBIOS username.

Declare session idle after

This option affects reporting statistics, whereby a session is declared idle after the amount of time specified without any activity.

Cached Session Timeout

Specify the amount of time that a session is cached for (higher amount of time reduces AD transactions).

Authenticating Against Multiple Domains

If the users connecting to the Parallels 2X Remote Application Server are stored in different domains within a forest, tick the option All Trusted Domains.

Authenticating Against Non Domain Users

In order to authenticate users sessions against users specified on a standalone machine you must enter the [workgroup_name] / [machine_name] instead of the domain name. For example if you would like to authenticate users against a list of local users on a machine called SERVER1 that is a member of the workgroup WORKGROUP, enter the following in the domain field: WORKGROUP/SERVER1.
