The TSX Connection is our own RDP Client. You can find it for free in the TSX Remote App Installer package and you can use it independently from TS(X) Remote App . It offers additional functions compared to Microsoft's RDP Client e.g. choosing which connection type (desktop connection or seamless application mode) you want to make.

How to create a TSX RemoteApp/Desktop Connection?

If you want to use TSX RemoteApp/Desktop Connection you can easily configure your seamless remote-connection.
