The URL Content Redirection feature supports redirection from a remote desktop or application to a client, and from a client to a remote desktop or application.

Redirection from a remote desktop or application to a client is called agent-to-client redirection. Redirection from a client to a remote desktop or application is called client-to-agent redirection.

Agent-to-client redirection

With agent-to-client redirection, Horizon Agent sends the URL to Horizon Client, which opens the default application for the protocol in the URL on the client machine.

Client-to-agent redirection

With client-to-agent redirection, Horizon Client opens a remote desktop or remote application that you specify to handle the URL. If the URL is redirected to a remote desktop, the link is opened in the default browser for the protocol on the desktop. If the URL is redirected to a remote application, the link is opened by the specified application. The end user must be entitled to the desktop or application pool.

You can redirect some URLs from a remote desktop or application to a client, and redirect other URLs from a client to a remote desktop or application. You can redirect any number of protocols, including HTTP, HTTPS, mailto, and callto.
