  1. Hi,
    Very helpful to me, Thanks a lot. great article.
    I am using hp thin client t5540 as a client machine to access my VM_Pool from RDWeb access Thin client has Windows CE 6.0 with IE6 and I am unable to access my VM_Pool as it requires some RDP active x controls and RDP 6.1 or later. Can you help me in this regard.


  2. Hi Adil,

    Too bad. in order for RDS to work should meet some requirements. One of them is RDP client connection version.
