XenApp and XenDesktop

General Content Redirection

Content redirection allows you to control whether users access information with applications published on servers or with applications running locally on user devices.

Client folder redirection

Client folder redirection changes the way client-side files are accessible on the host-side session. When you enable only client drive mapping on the server, client-side full volumes are automatically mapped to the sessions as Universal Naming Convention (UNC) links. When you enable client folder redirection on the server and the user configures it on the Windows desktop device, the portion of the local volume specified by the user is redirected.

Host to client redirection

Consider using host to client redirection for specific uncommon use cases. Normally, other forms of content redirection are better. This type of redirection is supported only on Server OS VDAs (not Desktop OS VDAs).

Local App Access and URL redirection

Local App Access seamlessly integrates locally installed Windows applications in to a hosted desktop environment without changing from one computer to another.

USB and client drive consideration

HDX technology provides generic USB redirection for specialty devices that don’t have optimized support or where it is unsuitable.
