UDS Enterprise is a multi-platform connection broker that can be used to access virtual machines and applications from LAN (Local Area Network) or WAN (Wide Area Network).
When a platform is exposed to the Internet and must be accessed from outside the corporate network, you must have a set of configurations on access ports and authorize outbound and incoming flows.
The following diagram clarifies all the traffic and flow between the different components of UDS Enterprise in case of access from the internet.
If you already have, or are planning to acquire a UDS Enterprise platform where your services will be accessible from the internet, this scheme will help you to have a better understanding of all the ports that are used to connect to the virtual services deployed in UDS, as well as the ports that will be used to connect to the virtual desktops through the connection protocols supported by UDS Enterprise.
UDS Enterprise consists of 2 main elements that interact with each other, but the data and configuration files are stored in a MySQL database:
UDS (Broker) Server: Installed as a VM and provided in virtual appliance format. It is the software that mediates between customers and service providers. It is the Fundamental piece of UDS because it performs the functions of connection broker allowing the administration and management of the platform.
UDS Tunneler: Installed as VM and provided in virtual appliance format. This Software is responsible for making secure connections to desktop services over the WAN and providing HTML5 access to services. The UDS tunneler allows you to connect from any device / browser / client to the desktop services through an SSH tunnel without having previously installed any type of software. In addition, it allows RDP access to desktop services through HTML5.
