Mapping a Mobile Device for a Session

There are two alternative options to map a mobile device to a drive in a session:

Automatic Drive Mapping

You can use dynamic client drive mapping to have a drive automatically mapped to your mobile device. The directories and files on your mobile device will be accessible under this drive.

  1. Open the IGEL Setup, go to Devices > Storage Devices > Storage Hotplug and activate Enable dynamic client drive mapping. Alternatively, you can set Number of storage hotplug devices to a number greater than zero.
  2. Click OK.

    You can access the directories and files on your mobile device like with a regular hotplug storage device.

    For further information, see the manual chapter Storage Hotplug.

Manual Mapping to a Specific Drive

You can specifiy a drive letter under which the directories and files on your mobile device will be accessible.

  1. If the session will run in fullscreen mode, open the IGEL Setup, go to User Interface > Desktop and activate In-Session Control Bar.
  2. If the session will run in fullscreen mode or appliance mode, ensure that Autostart under System > Accessories > Mobile Device Access is enabled.
  3. Go to the Drive Mapping page for your session type. Example: With RDP sessions, the setup path is Sessions > RDP > RDP Global > Mapping > Drive Mapping.
  4. Activate Enable Drive Mapping.
  5. Click Hinzufügen Add to bring up the mapping window.
  6. Click Enabled to enable the drive connection.
  7. Select a Drive to map from the list under which the local device or the folder is to be mapped.
  8. Enter /media as the Local Drive Path.
  9. Click OK.

    You can access the directories and files on your mobile device like with a regular hotplug storage device.
