You configure global settings to determine the way client sessions and connections work.

The global settings are not specific to a single Connection Server instance. They affect all client sessions that are managed by a standalone Connection Server instance or a group of replicated instances.

You can also configure Connection Server instances to use direct, nontunneled connections between Horizon clients and remote desktops. See "Configure the Secure Tunnel and PCoIP Secure Gateway" in the Horizon Installation document.


Familiarize yourself with the global settings. See Global Settings for Client Sessions and Global Security Settings for Client Sessions and Connections and Global Client Restriction Settings for Client Sessions.
