Configure PCoIP virtual channels

Specifies the virtual channels that can and cannot operate over PCoIP sessions. This setting also determines whether to disable clipboard processing on the PCoIP host.

Virtual channels that are used in PCoIP sessions must appear on the virtual channel authorization list. Virtual channels that appear in the unauthorized virtual channel list cannot be used in PCoIP sessions.

You can specify a maximum of 15 virtual channels for use in PCoIP sessions.

Separate multiple channel names with the vertical bar (|) character. Forexample, the virtual channel authorization string to allow the mksvchan and vdp_rdpvcbridge virtual channels is mksvchan|vdp_vdpvcbridge.

If a channel name contains the vertical bar or backslash (\) character, insert a backslash character before it. For example, type the channel name awk|ward\channel as awk\|ward\\channel.

When the authorized virtual channel list is empty, all virtual channels are disallowed. When the unauthorized virtual channel list is empty, all virtual channels are allowed.

The virtual channels setting applies to both agent and client. Virtual channels must be enabled on both agent and client for virtual channels to be used.

The virtual channels setting provides a separate check box that allows you to disable remote clipboard processing on the PCoIP host. This value applies to the agent only.

By default, all virtual channels are enabled, including clipboard processing.
