Hi Joe, Horizon 7 has been announced, with Extreme Blast protocol. Any idea when that will be supported by F5 (will require a new APM version to be supported I presume)? Thank you. Alex

Hi Joe, The USB redirection option only add "VMware View Policy" object to VPE or also changing something else - I am asking as we have Policy created manually and this doesn't seems to work after adding only this object with "USB redirection" option enabled - I have been informed that iApp contain bug and misplaced "VMware View policy" object - but even if I put if before "View Client Resource Assign" doesn't seems to work anyway - any other options I can check ? Regards, Marcin
