the local setup of the device or through a UMS profile configuration.
Please check in this readme which restrictions apply and how to switch the

Known issues:
[ICA/Citrix Receiver 13]
– Currently Kerberos is not supported, so Kerberos passthrough will not work
with ICA sessions and Citrix XenApp/StoreFront.
Workaround: configure “Passthrough authentication”
– Smartcard authentication is supported for ICA sessions created on the IGEL
device (supported with Citrix servers up to version 6.5). Kerberos
passthrough and Citrix XenApp/StoreFront login are not supported.
– Only the “User name and password” StoreFront authentication method is supported.
– During Citrix XenApp/StoreFront logoff the logoff for running desktop sessions
does not work.
– Com-port redirection is not supported.
– Webcam redirection is not supported with H.264 hardware and software encoding,
still legacy theora encoding is supported.

– Fabulatech USB Redirection is not supported with IGEL Legacy RDP Client 1.0.
Please use IGEL RDP Client 2 – RDP legacy mode can be deactivated at
IGEL Setup -> Sessions -> RDP -> RDP Global -> Options page

[Quest vWorkspace]
– Multimedia Redirection:
Sound redirection is not working with WMV/WMA streams
– USB Redirection does not work reliable
IGEL Linux 5.03.190 (stable build based on 5.03.120)
New features:
– Added VNC secure mode, based on a SSL-encrypted VNC connection. The SSL
connection uses a special certificate located in the directory /wfs/ca-certs.
This feature requires the Universal Management Suite (UMS) to be involved,
to handle the shadowing permissions and double check whether the connection
is allowed or not. In addition the UMS is used to assure a secure credential
exchange between the TC and the UMS console.
IMPORTANT: The UMS must have the version 4.07.100 or higher!
The feature can be enabled in IGEL setup at “System->Shadow->Secure Mode”
(registry key: network.vncserver.secure_mode, default: off)

– Update Java Runtime Environment to version 1.7.0

– Updated Flash Player download URL to version

– Added information about network speed and duplex mode of Thin Client in the
system information pane along with other Thin Client specific properties.

Fixed bugs:
– Fixed HDX Flash Redirection to work with enabled server-side content
fetching (SSCF)

– Fixed local logon window for IGEL RDP Client 2 to customize the Server-URL
within the logon window.
IGEL Linux 5.03.120 (stable build based on 5.03.110)
Fixed bugs:
– Fixed program crash on a UD2 if RemoteFX is enabled.
– Fixed window position if VESA mode is enabled.
IGEL Linux 5.03.110 (stable build based on 5.03.100)
Fixed bugs:
– Fixed hotkeys for switching additional keyboard layouts.

[base system]
– Restricted RPC access: RPC informations are only reported to localhost now.

– Fixed a problem with 802.1X authentication in connection with SCEP.
– Improved dynamic DNS registration with method DNS.

– Fixed a bug that broke WiFi roaming between multiple SSIDs under certain circumstances.
