Introduction 1.1   Background Ever since the “SCADAPocket” solution was discontinued, Schneider’s solution for displaying Vijeo Citect on a PDA or tablet computer has been to use Citrix or MS Remote Desktop. In this solution, the PDA or tablet computer simply executes the remote client software. The application itself runs as a new session on a local server. This effective use of third-party software allows Vijeo Citect to run on any hardware products that support Citrix or RDP client software. This document provides information and procedures to set up a Vijeo Citect application to run on an Apple iPhone. In writing the procedures, we have chosen to use MS Windows Server 2003/2008 as the RDP server, and iTap as the iPhone RDP client. 1.1.1   MS Terminal Services Microsoft has recently changed the name of their Terminal Services product to Remote Desktop. A Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client can connect to a Microsoft Windows Server in a similar way to the one used by a Terminal Services client to connect to a Terminal Services server. This simplifies the architecture since the Remote Desktop server is part of a standard installation of MS Windows Server 2003 and 2008. 1.2   Applications 1.2.1   iPhone RDP application The iPhone has a number of applications that can be used to establish an RDP connection with the Windows operating system. This procedure has been written using the “iTap RDP client v1.4.1” by HLW. Other known iPhone RDP clients include: ã  Remote Desktop by MochaSoft ã  WinAdmin by Carter Harrison, LLC ã  Jaadu Remote Desktop by iTeleport LLC ã  iRemoteDesktop by Hana Mobile  All clients can be purchased online from the Apple iTunes store.    Copyright ©  2010 Schneider Electric (Australia) Pty. Ltd.   4   1.2.2   PC Windows application It is recommended that you make an RDP connection to a Windows operating system such as: ã  MS Windows Server 2003 ã  MS Windows server 2008 If connecting to MS Windows Server, the RDP connection will create a new session on the server. This new session will automatically run in the background and will not take over the console session currently running on the machine. NOTE: Connecting to Windows Server uses a Client Access License (CAL). Refer to the Microsoft Windows website (one such KB article is: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/187629/en-us) to understand RDP licensing requirements. If you chose to connect to Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, then the RDP client must connect as the console session. This will effectively take over the machine. 1.2.3   VMware and virtual machines RDP supports connection to Virtual Machines (VM) like those created using VMware. This allows you to set up a virtual MS Windows Server on your MS Windows XP laptop. If you are using a VM as your RDP server, you can continue to follow the procedures in this document as if you where connecting to a real machine. 1.3   Communications The iPhone can communicate with the RDP server via Wi-Fi or 3G. Wi-Fi has the advantage of generally being faster and more stable than a 3G connection. On the other hand, a 3G connection has the obvious advantage of a large coverage area. This document includes procedures for both connection types.
