Vmware Broker.

Vmware Broker.

Vmware uses the terms, Vmware broker, Connection Manager, vmware desktop Infrastrcture.
I wonder if these all mean the same thing.
The Broker I know about  approximately  2cents is the one that Thin Clients transit through to get to the Virtual machines.
Anyone out there has a link on how to set it up?
