RDP - Start program on connection RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am wondering if it is possible to publish an RDP session to a Windows 2003 server through IAG which would have the option of "Start the following program on connection". If it is not possible to do then I may need to do it through GP on the target server.

    Thanks

  • Hi Amigo. The "start the following program on connection" is a property of Terminal Server so the only way to do it is to assign that property in Terminal Server. IAG is just a "funnel" that can transport the client's traffic (network layer) to the internal server but it doesn't manipulate data at the "application" level (not in client-server applications although it does in web applications). With UAG the scenario is a little bit different because UAG plays the rol of Remote Desktop Services Gateway so it can publish directly RemoteApps and this way there is no need to logon to RDP and then launch an application. The application can be launched by clicking an icon in the portal (of course, in the background there will be a RDP logon but all this will be handled by RemoteApps)

    Hope it helps

  • On your trunk just set the Initial Internal Application to be the RDP App...

    Only thing is if you have types of operating systems connecting, you can get different results.

  • I don't think I explained my issue very clearly. I would like to achieve this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc782233(WS.10).aspx through a published terminal services application on IAG.
