2.3. Auto Discovery of Servers

Oracle Virtual Desktop Client includes the ability to automatically discover servers for connection. This auto discovery process uses several techniques including Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), DNS lookups, and broadcast to select a server on your network automatically.

Auto discovery of servers is enabled when you select the Find Automatically option in the Server field on the connect screen. Oracle Virtual Desktop Client then finds a server on your network automatically.

Note

Depending on your network configuration, auto discovery may not be available when accessing the network from remote locations. If auto discovery is not available, contact your administrator for details of the server name.
