In this area, you can specify the settings for the connection between the Horizon Client and the server.
Preferred desktop protocol: The selected option is preferred by the client when negotiating the connection protocol.
If the server does not accept the connection protocol preferred by the client, the connection protocol preferred by the server will be used.
Server setting: The client does not give the server details of a preferred connection protocol. The connection protocol preferred by the server is used.
RDP: The client tells the server that it prefers RDP as the connection protocol.
PCoIP: The client tells the server that it prefers PCoIP as the connection protocol.

Hardware video acceleration can be used for VMware Blast. Information regarding hardware video acceleration on IGEL thin clients can be found in the Hardware Video Acceleration on IGEL Linux FAQs. For hardware video acceleration, the Multimedia Codec Pack must be installed.
Please note that hardware video acceleration cannot be used in combination with several monitors (Multi-Monitor).
If no hardware video acceleration is available, rendering will take place via software, without acceleration.
