I currently have ProperRDP installed and working, but I can only create a global bookmark and then the user can't edit the host. I want to deploy the applet but allow the users to choose which host to connect. Is there a way to do this?
You can give the users rights to add their own terminal services bookmarks. You'd do this under Roles, Terminal Services Options.
Is there a pattern that ties the user to the machine they access ? In otherwords if the machine name was also their username, you could use a variable and set the hostname to <USERNAME> .
I've given the user permission to add their own bookmark, the problem is their only bookmark options are the Juniper built in services such as Terminal Service, Citrix, SSH and Telnet. The Java Proper RDP service doesn't show up as an option in the user's bookmark.
Just to recap the only way I've found to offer the user the Proper RDP is to create a global bookmark. Within the global bookmark you must enter the Hostname or IP. Which then doesn't allow Users to edit the host. So I'm statically
What is spawning this is I want offer Mac user's the ability to RDP via the clientless web interface. Any I don't want to go with JSAM.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
I guess this is the limitation of using an add-on tool kit such as ProperRDP rather than something home-grown. You could use a <userattr.prefferedterminalserverIP> and populate the users home terminal service in the LDAP first, but I don't think that this is what you want..
Relisatically I think you're options are as foo says, use the JSAM or raise a Feature request with your local SE. My success rate for feature requests such as this is less than 10%.
It seems that it should be possible to modify the HTTP code for the ProperRDP session to prompt for a server name and then pass that name to the applet. I've tried to figure this part out, but have been unsuccessful to date.
Short of doing a rewrite of the proper Java RDP the options you can play with are limited. I have been doing a little research and have discovered an alternative called "jrdesktop"
The link to it is http://jrdesktop.sourceforge.net/
I found it a little bit ago and have not had the time to download it and give it a real try. My first five minute attempt resulted in failure due to some security issues that I did not have time to troubleshoot. BUT! It looks very feature rich. So perhaps this is a good alternate to ProperJava RDP with more feature/functionality.
I don't mean to threadcap but I was wondering if there has been any progress made on setting up ProperJavaRDP for individual profiles (instead of using a global resource profile). We are also trying to set this up to allow users to customize their own host sessions.
Also, I did download and install jrdesktop as a hosted java app but am unable to configure it. There are some settings in the HTML field that have __PLEASE SPECIFY__ (ProperJaveRDP has the .class file listed here). I'm not exactly sure which .class file to put for jrdesktop.
If I need to create a new post let me know and I'll do so.
Hey Rhino - I did download the jrdesktop and played with it a bit. I am on the road and don't have admin access to my box. from memory (which is never all that trustworthy I think that the variable might be jrdesktop.main -
I will be back in my office next week and can check. Let me know if that works or not.
Thanks Kevin for the assistance. I created a new thread/post to continue our discussion on jrdesktop.
Regarding the original post, I would still be interested in knowing if there is some way to allow Hosted Java Applets to be applied per user profile and not just as a resource profile that is a global setting.
Has there been any progress/updates on how this can be accomplished? Seems a little cumbersome as it stands now. Coming from a Sonicwall VPN this was a built in feature which was very popular.
