About Virtualization, VDI, SBC, Application Compatibility and anything else I feel like
In Enterprise environments users are often working on a remote (virtual) desktop such as when using SBC or VDI.
They typically get a full screen session, perhaps on a thin client, and have not idea that they are using a remote desktop.
Clever users know they can use alternative key combinations such as Shift-F2 for Citrix or Ctrl-Alt-End for RDS.
But that’s not the seamless experience we want to give our users, is it?
How does it work?
Magic Filter intercepts special key strokes, such as Ctrl-Alt-Delete and Windows L, on the local machine and passes them on to a remote session.
Magic Filter is not a (filter) driver but just a user mode process running with user privileges.
What is supported?
Magic Filter supports the following Operating Systems:
The following clients are currently supported:
Although we are already testing with the Remote Desktop Connection client (mstsc.exe) it is not yet included in this release.
After I released the Preview Anton van Pelt asked why I used Windows Server 2003 for the demo. I did that to emphasize that we are not only supporting the newer OS versions but also older versions. As I reply to Anton I made a second video showing that it works on Windows NT 4 and Server 2012 just as well!
