View Agent Direct-Connection Plug-In Administration provides information about installing and configuring View Agent Direct-Connection Plugin. This plug-in is an installable extension to View Agent that allows Horizon Client to directly connect to a virtual machine-based desktop, a Remote Desktop Services (RDS) desktop, or an application without using View Connection Server. All the desktop and application features work in the same way as when the user connects through View Connection Server.

This information is intended for an administrator who wants to install, upgrade or configure View Agent Direct-Connection Plug-In in a virtual machine-based desktop or an RDS host. This guide is written for experienced Windows system administrators who are familiar with virtual machine technology and datacenter operations.
