Configuring your XenDesktop environment
After the Citrix Receiver for Windows is installed, the following configuration steps allow users to access their hosted applications and desktops:
- Adaptive transport - Adaptive transport optimizes data transport by applying a new Citrix protocol called Enlightened Data Transport (EDT) in preference to TCP whenever possible. For more information about configuring adaptive transport, see Configuring adaptive transport.
- Auto-update - Auto-update provides automatic updates for Citrix Receiver for Windows and for the HDX RealTime Optimization Pack without the need to download updates manually. For more information about configuring auto-update, see Configuring auto-update.
- Bidirectional content redirection - The bidirectional content redirection allows you to enable or disable client to host and host to client URL redirection. For more information on configuring bidirectional content redirection, see Configuring bidirectional content redirection.
- Bloomberg keyboards - Specialist USB devices (for example, Bloomberg keyboards and 3-D mice) can be configured to use USB support. For information on configuring Bloomberg keyboards, see Configure Bloomberg keyboards.
- Composite USB Device - A composite USB device has the ability to perform more than one function. This is accomplished by exposing each of those functions using different interfaces. For more information on configuring composite USB device, see Configuring composite USB device.
- USB support - USB support enables users to interact with a wide range of USB devices when connected to a virtual desktop. For more information on configuring USB support, see Configuring USB support.
