New Receiver, new Desktop Lock.
Our original Desktop Lock works with Receiver for Windows 3.4 Enterprise to lock-down thin clients and re-purposed computers for access to virtual desktops. The new ‘Receiver Desktop Lock’ is designed specifically to do the same with Receiver for Windows 4.2.
You install Receiver 4.2 followed by Receiver Desktop Lock. When users start their device, their virtual desktop starts. There is no access to the local operating system. Receiver Desktop Lock automatically optimizes the Desktop Viewer toolbar removing the unnecessary Home, Restore, Maximize, and Display functions.
You can use Receiver Desktop Lock on domain or non-domain joined Windows 8.1, Windows 8, 7, and Windows Thin PC. End points can be local or remote. You must configure Receiver to connect to StoreFront through native protocols. You can then take advantage of Receiver 4.2 features including pass-through and smart card authentication. You can even enable remote access using Netscaler Gateway and use two-factor authentication. And of course you can use Receiver 4.2’s 3Dpro, Flash, USB, HDX Insight, Microsoft Lync integrations, and local app access capabilities.
Details are covered in Citrix eDocs.
