Setting

Description

Bandwidth Limit

Maximum bandwidth for the connection, in megabits per second.

The default setting is 75 megabits per second, which is the maximum value.

Decrease this setting if you are using a low bandwidth connection, or if you want to restrict the amount of server bandwidth used by Oracle Virtual Desktop Client.

Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU)

This is the maximum packet size for network connections, in bytes.

The default setting is 1500 bytes, which is the maximum value.

If you are experiencing problems when using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), you might want to decrease this value. See Section 6.1, “Adjusting the MTU Setting”.

MTU Auto Detect

Oracle Virtual Desktop Client detects the optimum MTU setting for the connection automatically. The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) setting is not used when you enable this setting.

Force Compression

Compresses all packets before transmission, regardless of the available bandwidth.

Lossless Compression

Disables the use of lossy compression for image data. Choose this setting if you want a high-quality display.

Network Protocol

The type of network addresses used by computers on the network. The default setting is Auto. This setting selects the network protocol automatically.
