    Achandler, what are you using on the client end for them to acess the RDS Session? I assume your not using Microsoft Remote Desktop Session?

    Reading James, article using Windows Thin PC looks like an option to force the macine to connect to a RDS session to which a user signs in. Which looks very interesting

    Apologies didn't get an email sayign there was an update.

    We use NComputing thin clients to our RDS server.

    Then we use WES 7 thin clients to our VDI solution, we can then use RDP 8.0 and get better results. We also use server 2012 as the VDI host.

    Ahhh that makes sense, feel this is going to take a bit of time to get right. So I now have option of Windows Thin Client attaching to the RDS or WES 7. That brilliant, more food for thought!

    If you have fat machines already then use then with Windows 7 Thin Client or even win7 pro, you dont need them to run anything but Windows, Anti-Virus and RDP.

    If you make them auto login in locally with something like Thinkiosk, then that login doesn't slow people down either.

    Yeah I was looking at ThinKiosk to connect to the RDS, however I can't work out how to point it at the server address and not a URL or do you have to point it using Citrix Reciever?

    Hi Andy

    We use the thinkiosk process launcher and launch a local RDP file, we also use thinkiosk as a complete shell replacement. There is an update coming that will allow you to provide a list of rdp files to choose from too, though probably not necessary for you.
