Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

Framehawk policy settings


As of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 1903, Framehawk is no longer supported. Instead, use Thinwire with adaptive transport enabled.

The Framehawk section includes policy settings that enable and configure the Framehawk display channel on the server.

Framehawk display channel

When enabled, the server attempts to use the Framehawk display channel for the user’s graphics and input remoting. That display channel uses UDP to provide a better user experience on networks with high loss and latency characteristics. However, it can also use more server resources and bandwidth than other graphics modes.

By default, the Framehawk display channel is disabled.

Framehawk display channel port range

This policy setting specifies the range of UDP port numbers that the VDA uses to exchange Framehawk display channel data with the user device. The port numbers are in the form lowest port number or highest port number. The VDA attempts to use each port, starting with the lowest port number and incrementing for each subsequent attempt. The port handles inbound and outbound traffic.

By default, the port range is 3224,3324.
