Hey guys

If the video driver and or video card on the Host is really slow (performance tests rate it very very low) would that have any effect on the Guest machines ability to render graphics to the end users over RDP?

Thanks!!

It depends if RDP or RemoteFX is in use.

RDP is a lightweight communication protocol, independant of graphics card in the server.

If you want better graphics support to your Clients, you could consider RemoteFX.

I have to check to see which one they are using.  Since Remote Desktop 7.1 is not an automatic download though I am going to assume for now that they are using RDP.

RDP is not designed for fast graphics, hence the enhancements with RemoteFX.

Ahh.. ok.  So when the user is on his remote desktop out of the office (they have 3 bonded T-1s) is it wise for him to use RemoteFX or would that absolutely kill the bandwidth.  There are 6 offsite users.

RemoteFX will give a better graphical user experience, bandwidth should not be an issue.

Perfect.  I will tell the inside and outside users to start using 7.1 then.

Thanks!!
