Windows Server 2003 R2





Although you can install a security server on a Windows Server 2003 physical or virtual machine, if you want to use the PCoIP Secure Gateway component, the operating system must be 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2. The PCoIP Secure Gateway component enables View Clients that use the PCoIP display protocol to use a security server rather than a VPN from outside the corporate firewall.

You can pair a security server that runs on a 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2 host with a Connection Server instance that runs on Windows Server 2003 or 2003 R2. Clients can still use the PCoIP Secure Gateway with this pair.


If you use a load balancer in front of multiple security servers, make sure all security servers use the same operating system.
