When Horizon Client detects that you are using a cellular data connection, the Network Usage dialog box appears to notify you that your remote desktop or application connection might use a substantial portion of your data plan.

About this task

In Horizon Client 3.1 and later, the Network Usage dialog box appears after you connect to a server and try to launch a remote desktop or application, after you tap a recent desktop or application shortcut, and after you connect to a remote application and try to launch another application or remote desktop from the Unity Touch sidebar. In Horizon Client 3.2 and later, the Network Usage dialog box appears only when you launch Horizon Client.

In Horizon Client 3.1 and later, you can suppress the Network Usage dialog box after it appears. You can also set an option to always suppress the Network Usage dialog box.
