Now that Horizon 6 has been released to the public at large I’ve had a chance to play around with it, as an end-user, on my MacBook. The first thing you need is the new (version 3) VMware Horizon Client for Mac available for download on our website.
After installation you’ll notice the icon has changed from the previous version. (because we do apps now as well 😉 )
Enter the FQDN or IP address of your connection server, enter your credentials, and login.
After the connection is established via the Horizon client you’re presented with the resources you’re entitled to, in this case I can connect to a RDS desktop, some Horizon View Desktops, and some RDS Hosted Applications.
In this example I’ll open PowerPoint 2013 by double clicking the icon.
After the connection has been established I’m presented with my application, seamlessly integrated into my Mac desktop, remoted via PCoIP.
The application can be used in a windowed mode (see above) or full screen (see below).
