Remote Desktop IP Virtualization consists in assigning IP addresses to remote desktop connections on a per session or per program basis, this article serves as a reference for using it with Kerio Control on different Windows instances.
On Windows 2008 R2 and newer
Terminal Server is changed to the Remote Desktop Session server that supports Remote Desktop IP Virtualization and no longer needs the use of proxy servers.
Remote Desktop IP Virtualization works in two modes:
- Per-Session mode, which assigns an IP address per user session.
- Per-program mode, which assigns an IP address for specified applications.
For more details and information about configuring Remote Desktop IP Virtualization, refer to Microsoft's blog Configuring Remote Desktop IP Virtualization.
On Windows 2008 and older
On Windows Server 2008 and older, Terminal Server works only with a single IP address that is shared among all users of Terminal Server. This may cause problems because Kerio Control cannot distinguish the users in the environment of the Terminal Server.
It is possible to use a proxy server and force the authentication with each request, but this authentication is not compatible with the NTLM protocol (Security protocol that provides authentication for Windows networks), full HTTPS filtering and other protocols.
