The Instant Passthrough settings allow you to set up a passthrough mechanism to MicrosoftRemoteApp applications located on a Remote Desktop Session Host. This will create an RDP (remote desktop protocol) file for each Microsoft RemoteApp application. The RDP file points to the application on the RD Session Host and is stored in the DBcache of all specified RD Session Hosts in the specified Remote Desktop farm. When a user accesses the RDP file, the request will automatically be redirected to the RD Session Host on which the application is located, after which the RD Session Host will deploy the application to the user's desktop.
- If Instant Passthrough settings are made when configuring Microsoft RemoteApp Integration, they will serve as the default values for all Microsoft RemoteApp applications in your environment.
- If Instant Passthrough settings are made when configuring a Microsoft RemoteApp application, they will apply only to that application.
- When specifying the server name and port, you can use the name of a RD Session Host, but also the name of a Remote Desktop farm. If you want to use single sign-on, you should use the fully qualified domain name.
- Bitmap caching can speed up your connection by storing frequently used images on your local hard disk.
- Do not passthrough if application is available on local computer allows you to define when a published or local version of the application should be launched. You can optionally choose to ignore the configured behavior inside or outside specific Zones via the Locations and Devices field.
- If you configure to passthrough anyway in specific Zones, at least one of the added Zones must apply.
- If you configure to passthrough anyway outside specific Zones, all added Zones must apply.
- When an Instant Passthrough session is started from a client running Workspace Control to a RD Session Host, no extra licenses are claimed.
- If a user has logged on to a RD Session Host on which a Microsoft RemoteApp application has been deployed and tries to start this application, it will start directly (the original command line of the application will be used to start the application).
- If the user has logged on to a computer or server on which a Microsoft RemoteApp application has not been deployed and tries to start this application, an RDP session will be started, based on the values of the Instant Passthrough mechanism.
