Randomize RDP file name with RDP proxy

When you click an RDP URL, an RDP file is downloaded. Upon clicking the RDP URL again a new RDP file with the same name is downloaded, resulting in a pop-up for the replacement of the new file with the existing file. To avoid this, the administrator can opt for randomizing the RDP file name. The file name is now randomized by appending the output of the time () function in the format <rdpFileName>_<outputof time()>.rdp. By doing this, the appliance generates a unique RDP file name every time you download a file.

Configure support for randomizing RDP file name with RDP proxy

To configure support for randomizing RDP file name with RDP proxy by using the command line interface at the command prompt, type:

    add rdpclientprofile <profileName> -rdpfileName <filename> -   randomizeRDPFilename <YES/NO>

    add rdpclientprofile clientProfileName -rdpfileName testRDP -   randomizeRDPFilename YES
