Secure Mobile Access 100 10.2 Administration Guide

Terminal Services (RDP), Terminal Services (RDP-HTML5) or Terminal Services (RDP-Native)

  1. In the Screen Size drop-down menu, select the default terminal services screen size to be used when users execute this bookmark. Because different computers support different screen sizes, when you use a remote desktop application, you should select the size of the screen on the computer from which you are running a remote desktop session. Additionally, you might want to provide a path to where your application resides on your remote computer by typing the path in the Application and Path field.

    • In the Colors drop-down menu, select the default color depth for the terminal service screen when users execute this bookmark.
  2. Select an Access Type Selection. Smart or Manual.

    • Smart: Allows the firmware to decide which mode to launch on the client.

      When creating a new unified bookmark, Smart is selected by default. Auto-detection is processed using bookmark-specific default modes while launching the bookmark.

    • Manual: Provides options to configure the modes, their priorities, and the choose method. At least one mode should be enabled in the selection box.

      The launch sequence is as follows: HTML5 and Native. Selecting Manual allows you to change, enable, or disable the launch methods. If you select Native to launch the RDP bookmark, then the SMA Connect Agent launches the RDP Receiver on the local machine to do the RDP connection.

      The up and down arrows are used to adjust the launch priority. Fork and tick are used to disable or enable the modes. Disabled modes are put at the bottom of the list with a gray font color.

      The Choose during Launch option is not enabled by default under the Manual mode. In this setting, while launching the bookmark, the first available mode in the configured list is run at once after auto-detection.

      After the Choose during Launch option is enabled, while launching the unified bookmark, if there are multiple modes available for the client, a menu is provided from which you can choose within a five second count-down. When only one mode is available, the bookmark is also run immediately.

      If the Remember my choice option is selected during the launch time, the selected mode is remembered through a cookie.

      That means, when next launching the bookmark, the remembered mode is run directly within two seconds. Clicking anywhere in the HTML can 'forget' the remembered mode so you can re-choose.

      Editing or deleting the bookmark in the same browser can also reset the remembered mode. When no modes can run on the client with the configuration, the following notice appears.

  3. Optionally enter the local path for this application in the Application and Path field.
  4. Select Enable wake-on-LAN to enable waking up a computer over the network connection. Selecting this check box causes the following new fields to be displayed:

    • Wait time for boot-up (seconds) – Enter the number of seconds to wait for the target host to fully boot up before cancelling the WoL operation.
    • Send WOL packet to host name or IP address – To send the WoL packet to the hostname or IP of this bookmark, select Send WOL packet to host name or IP address that can be applied in tandem with a MAC address of another machine to wake.
  5. In the Start in the following folder field, optionally enter the local folder in which to execute application commands.
