A Client Policy controls which configuration tabs are available to configure on the user’s 2X RDP Client interface. With the policy, the 2X administrator can also set to force settings within these tabs.

This allows 2X administrators to easily manage and restrict the options available to users on the 2X RDP Client connection to a 2X Farm. Criteria can also be configured to distribute different policies depending on where the user is connecting from or even the machines (MAC Address).

This is particularly useful if an Administrator wants to lock down what clients can access and configure, depending on where or what device they are connecting from.

Client Policies are currently only available on the Windows Based clients listed below:

1. 2X Windows Client
2. 2X Windows Basic Client
3.2X Windows CE Client

Configure client policies from the 2X Console under the Policies page according to the next steps:

1. From the tasks drop down menu, select Add
2.Configure which users the Policy applicable forHow to Create Client Policies
3.  Select the Connection Properties or Options tabs to configure the policy and enable/ disable options for the user.

In addition, also configure specific tab configuration so that it is enforced at a client level. This will allow the administrator to enforce specific settings.
