Configure RemoteFX

This policy setting allows you to control the availability of RemoteFX on both a Remote Desktop Virtualization Host (RD Virtualization Host) server and a Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server. When deployed on an RD Virtualization Host server RemoteFX delivers a rich user experience by rendering content on the server by using graphics processing units (GPUs). By default RemoteFX for RD Virtualization Host uses server-side GPUs to deliver a rich user experience over LAN connections and RDP 7. 1. When deployed on an RD Session Host server RemoteFX delivers a rich user experience by using a hardware-accelerated compression scheme. If you enable this policy setting RemoteFX will be used to deliver a rich user experience over LAN connections and RDP 7. 1. If you disable this policy setting RemoteFX will be disabled. If you do not configure this policy setting the default behavior will be used. By default RemoteFX for RD Virtualization Host is enabled and RemoteFX for RD Session Host is disabled.
