A display protocol provides end users with a graphical interface to a View desktop that resides in the datacenter. You can use PCoIP (PC-over-IP), which VMware provides, or Microsoft RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol).

You can set policies to control which protocol is used or to allow end users to choose the protocol when they log in to a desktop.


When you check out a desktop for use on a local client system, neither of the PCoIP or RDP remote display protocols is used.
