TSPlus is a remote desktop software solution that enables users to access Windows applications and desktops remotely. It provides a way to access Windows applications from any device with an internet connection, including Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android devices. Here’s an overview of how TSPlus works:
- Installation: To start using TSPlus, you need to install it on the Windows machine that hosts the applications or desktop you want to access remotely. The machine becomes the TSPlus server.
- Configuration: After installation, you configure TSPlus to specify which applications or desktops you want to make available for remote access. You can choose to publish specific applications or publish the entire desktop.
- Client Connection: Users who want to access the applications or desktop remotely need to install the TSPlus client software on their device. The client software is available for different operating systems and devices.
- Connection Establishment: Users launch the TSPlus client on their device and enter the necessary connection details, such as the IP address or hostname of the TSPlus server. They may also need to authenticate with valid credentials.
- Session and Protocol: Once the connection is established, TSPlus creates a session between the client and the TSPlus server. It uses various protocols, such as Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) or HTML5, to transmit the screen updates, keyboard, and mouse inputs between the client and server.
- Remote Access: Users can now interact with the applications or desktop as if they were directly using them on their own device. The screen updates are sent from the server to the client, and the user’s inputs are transmitted back to the server for processing.
- Additional Features: TSPlus often includes additional features like file transfer capabilities, printer redirection, session recording, load balancing, and more, depending on the specific edition or version of TSPlus being used.
It’s important to note that TSPlus operates on the Windows Terminal Services infrastructure and extends its functionality by adding features and compatibility with a broader range of devices and operating systems.
