IP Virtualization

Remote Desktop IP Virtualization configuration (with vSpace Pro): using Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012 and 2016

This article is for IT Administrators looking to enable IP virtualization in their environment for 3rd party network software compatibility.

In a Multiuser environment with NComputing, all sessions are coming for the same operating system, therefore all Windows sessions also use the same IP as the host.  This can be challenging for some remote access applications, session control software, corporate web filters or any software that is looking to manage their Windows session permissions or functions by its IP address.    

Microsoft Introduced a feature called "IP Virtualization" as part of Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server Operating Systems.  This optional Microsoft feature provides a capability of assigning a unique IP to every session which will benefit most above mentioned cases. 

vSpace Pro desktop virtualization can leverage this integrated feature in Windows Server 2008R2, 2012 or 2016 to provide unique IP addresses for each vSpace session.

There are helpful articles online for how to set up and configure this feature.  You are encouraged to research what fits best your needs.
