RD Gateway support through URL Scheme

RD Gateway support through URL Scheme

Hi,

I see that you've recently released RD Gateway support. This is something it looks like we are going to have to have in order to start our users sessions programmatically via url schemes. Is this something you plan on supporting?

Thanks,
Ken

RE: RD Gateway support through URL Scheme

Ken, please take a look at our supported keys and URL schemes here:

http://pocketcloudsupport.wyse.com/e...ys-url-schemes

pocketcloud://domain.com/file.[rdp] [vnc] [vmware]
Example: pocketcloud://wyse.com/Windows7.rdp
pocketcloud://domain.com: port/file.[rdp] [vnc] [vmware]
Example: pocketcloud://wyse.com:82/Windows7.rdp
pocketcloud://http://domain.com/file.[rdp] [vnc] [vmware]
Example: pocketcloud://http://wyse.com/OSX.vnc
pocketcloud://http://domain.com: port/file.[rdp] [vnc] [vmware]
Example: pocketcloud://http://wyse.com:82/OSX.vnc
pocketcloud://file:///path/to/file.[rdp] [vnc] [vmware]
Example: pocketcloud://file:///mnt/sdcard/Download/Win7Pro.rdp

Sample code to launch PocketCloud from another app:

public class Main extends Activity {

private static final String TAG = "Example Application";

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.main);

String fileName = "/test.rdp";

// Get the external storage (SD card)
File extStore = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory();
Log.i(TAG, "Storage path: " + extStore.getAbsolutePath());
Log.i(TAG, "Loading file from: " + extStore.getAbsolutePath() + fileName);

// Build absolute file path
String absoluteFilePath = "file://" + extStore.getAbsolutePath() + "/test.rdp";
Log.w(TAG, "Loading file path: " + absoluteFilePath);

// Set up data to launch PocketCloud Pro
Uri uri = Uri.parse(absoluteFilePath);
Intent i = new Intent();
i.setAction(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
i.setData(uri);
startActivity(i);
}
}

Please let me know if you have anymore questions.

Thanks Josh,

Yes, I am very familiar with that page, hence the reason for my question. I'm not seeing any method of passing the RD Gateway info in via URL scheme and was curious if this is something you are going to support?

Thanks,
ken

Please hurry

Please hurry with this feature, as I cannot refer pocketcloud to any of our clients until this is implemented. (i.e. that way RemoteApp + RDGateway in rdp file). Honestly, this should take a day not a few months to implement; considering you already support RDGateway. (just parse the RDGateway keys...)

Also, I would like to request native RemoteApp support in pocketcloud - without the need for an rdp file...
