RDPD is a software component that is part of the default production installation or can be installed as a standalone component. This can help system administrators to use any RDP client to access target systems. RDP Direct or RDPD worked as a supplementary component in the system, allowing users who require access to RDP protocol-based sessions without authenticating to the PAM portal. The RDPD proxy runs on a 64-bit architecture to improve RDPD performance and concurrent session capabilities.
This section covers the following:
Before you begin
You have already installed the Sectona Web Access or RDPD proxy component. Refer to the Installation Section for more details.
Ensure the PAM server can communicate with the jump Server as per the communication requirement mentioned in Standard Port Requirement for Installation.
