vmware-horizon-clientKey Features

VMware Horizon Client for Linux makes it easy to access your Windows virtual desktop from a supported Linux system with the best possible user experience on the Local Area Network (LAN) or across a Wide Area Network (WAN).

  • Support for Ubuntu 12.04 or 14.04, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.5, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 11 SP3, and CentOS 6.5 – The Horizon Client 3.2 installer provides support for these operating systems.
  • Unmatched performance – The adaptive capabilities of the PCoIP display protocol are optimized to deliver the best user experience, even over low-bandwidth and high-latency connections. Your desktop is fast and responsive regardless of where you are.
  • Simple connectivity – Horizon Client for Linux is tightly integrated with VMware Horizon for simple setup and connectivity.
  • Secure from any location – At your desk or away from the office, your data is delivered securely to you wherever you are. Enhanced certificate checking is performed on the client. Horizon Client for Linux also supports optional RADIUS and RSA SecurID authentication.

What’s New in This Release

  • Support for additional operating systems with the client installer — The new client installer provides both a graphical UI and a command-line UI for silent installations on the supported operating systems. See Before You Begin.
  • New UI for selecting which monitors to use for Horizon Client – If you specify that you want to use all monitors, and if you are using the PCoIP display protocol, you can specify a subset of adjacent monitors to use.
  • Persistent settings in location-based printing — Printer settings for location-based printers are retained after a user logs out or disconnects from the desktop. After the user logs in to the desktop again, the location-based printer continues to use the previously configured settings. The remote desktop must have View Agent 6.0.2 installed.
