The Cisco Virtualization Experience Client (VXC) 2112 and 2212 are workstation-class virtualization clients that run WTOS firmware for use with the Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) and the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). The ICA and RDP protocols are designed to deliver a user desktop from a centralized host server across standard IP networks, enabling you to use applications and desktop peripherals as if you were using them locally.

The Cisco VXC 2112 and Cisco VXC 2212 are highly optimized zero clients that provide ultra-fast access to applications, files, and network resources available on machines hosted by Citrix infrastructures. WTOS uses the Cisco VXC engine to provide a secure, near-zero management core that requires no local antivirus software or firewall to protect against viruses or malware.

Session and networks services available on enterprise networks may be accessed on enterprise networks, a direct intranet connection, or from a remote location using a secure gateway from Citrix.


This guide is intended for administrators of Cisco VXC 2112/2212 running WTOS. It provides information and detailed system configurations to help you design and manage a WTOS environment.
