Editing a RD Web Access Profile

Configuring a profile properly will allow you to take advantage of this feature and create the access scheme that suits better the company's needs.

Remember that each profile defines a single computer's desktop or application access, except for the "[any computer]" profile that gives access to all computers.

1. Go to Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server Manager's "Access Profile" tab. If it is not there, read the topic Access Profiles first.

2. Press "Edit" to configure the profile.

3. First of all, type in a descriptive name for the profile in the "Name" field.

4. Select the 'RD Web Access' Option.

5. Complete the 'RD Web URL' field with the Microsoft RD Web Access URL

6. Set the credentials to log into the remote machine:



Use the authenticated credentials

Sets a Single sign-on schema. The application credentials will be used to log in automatically on the remote desktop.

Ask for new credentials

Prompt the user for new credentials to access the remote desktop.

Use these credentials

If the credentials informed here are correct, this option will connect the user automatically to the remote desktop on selecting the profile, or after authenticating on Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server, if this is the only profile the user have.

6. Go to the permissions tab and set up the permission preferences as follow:



Allow anonymous access

Use this option, if you want this profile to be available for everyone. This means that everybody accessing Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server will see this profile. Checking this option will disable the user selection.

Group or users accesss

To use specific users for this profile, uncheck "Allow anonymous access", press "Add" and choose the users and groups from the local domain.

This means that only users that authenticate with their correct Windows username and password will be able to use this profile.(*)

(*) Thinfinity Remote Desktop supports a user changing the password at his next logon within the Thinfinity Remote Desktop web interface. Make sure to uncheck the 'Use standard browser authentication dialog' to enable this option

7. You may want to configure other settings for the RDP connection. If so, check out the available options on Display, Program, Experience, Advanced and Printer.

8. When you are done with the previous steps, press OK.
