VMware View 4.6 New Features

VMware released VMWare 4.6

servers can now accommodate PCoIP connections servers now include a PCoIP Secure Gateway component. The PCoIP Secure Gateway connection offers the following advantages:

  • The only remote desktop traffic that can enter the corporate data center is traffic on behalf of a strongly authenticated user.
  • Users can access only the desktop resources that they are authorized to access.
  • No VPN is required, as long as PCoIP is not blocked by any networking component.
  • servers with PCoIP support run on Server and take full advantage of the 64-bit architecture.

Enhanced device compatibility 4.6 supports redirection for syncing and managing iPhones and iPads with desktops. This release also includes improvements for using USB scanners, and adds to the list of USB printers that you can use with thin clients. For more information, see the list of View Client resolved issues.

Keyboard mapping improvements – Many keyboard-related have been fixed. For more information, see the list of View Client resolved issues.

New timeout setting for SSO users – With the single-sign-on (SSO) feature, after users authenticate to Connection Server, they are automatically logged in to their View desktop operating systems. This new timeout setting allows administrators to limit the number of minutes that the SSO feature is valid for.
For example, if an sets the time limit to 10 minutes, then 10 minutes after the user authenticates to Connection Server, the automatic login ability expires. If the user then walks away from the desktop and it becomes inactive, when the user returns, the user is prompted for login credentials. For more information, see the VMware View Administration documentation.

VMware 4.6 includes more than 1 fixes – For descriptions of selected resolved issues, see Resolved Issues.
