NComputing Virtualization Platform: vSpace Pro Enterprise Edition on Windows Platform
Sufficient Internet bandwidth must be available at Datacenter and Home users.
Example: VPN server (1194) Port forward config (FortiGate).
Example: VPN gateway service config (FortiGate)
- For basic productivity application (e.g. for text-based applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint), we recommend a minimum 256 – 512 Kbps per user session,
- For audio conferencing and screen sharing (e.g. Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, GoToMeeting, WebEx conferencing applications), we recommend a minimum 1-2 Mbps per user session.
- Video conferencing involves in two-way or multi-way video calls is not recommended as the amount of traffic generated will be greater than 30-40 Mbps per user session.
- For graphic based application bandwidth requirement may vary based on the applications.
- For basic productivity application (e.g. for text-based applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint), we recommend at least 1Mbps bandwidth to deliver virtual desktops,
- For audio conferencing plus screen sharing (e.g. Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, GoToMeeting, WebEx conferencing applications), we recommend 2-3 Mbps per user session.
- Video conferencing involves in two-way or multi-way video calls is not recommended as the amount of traffic generated will be greater than 30-40 Mbps per user session, with potential degraded user experience (delay and/or interrupted audio).
- For multimedia applications and/or vCAST streaming, more home bandwidths may be required depending on the content to provide a good user experience.

Cache the .ovpn and certificate files – when selected, the device will copy from the USB memory stick to internal storage the user-provided .ovpn file and its associated certificate and/or key files, if necessary. This will allow reestablishing the VPN connection without the necessity to provide the memory stick with the files again.

Following VPN logon screen appears on a device with OpenVPN enabled with the option letting the user to provide the configuration file, but without any files cached on the device yet:
The [Refresh] button can be clicked to refresh the lists, if a USB memory stick was connected after clicking the [Import .ovpn] button.After selecting the appropriate OpenVPN configuration file, the user must click the [Add] button to copy the file(s) to the internal storage of the device.4.f)Depending on the contents of the imported OpenVPN configuration file, a VPN logon screen containing the OpenVPN server address and the input fields appropriate for the determined authentication mode will be displayed. If a client certificate requiring a password has been cached on the device, then an information about the certificate subject will appear too.For example:
The [Connect VPN] button initiates the VPN user authentication process and, in case of successful authentication, starts the VPN connection. The [Import .ovpn] button in this situation can be used to replace the currently cached OpenVPN configuration file with a new one.
4.g) With a successful VPN connection, the GUI shows the two VPN icons .
