2.5.2.7 Access Audio Device on an RDP Client--Remote Application

 Goal

For the remote application to access an audio device on the RDP client.

Context of Use

After an RDP client establishes a connection to an RD Session Host, a remote application running on the RD Session Host server can access an audio device on the RDP client.

Actors

Remote application: The primary actor is the remote application. It is an application running on the remote machine.

RDP client: The RDP client routes audio content from the remote application to the local audio device.

RD Session Host: The RD Session Host is hosting the remote desktop or remote application to which the RDP client is connecting. The RD Session Host server manages redirecting audio data from the remote application to the audio device on the RDP client.

Stakeholders and Interests

Audio device on the RDP client: The audio device plays audio content that is sent from the remote application.

Preconditions

The RDP client is connected to the RD Session Host server. The RDP connection supports audio redirection. The remote desktop or remote application is running on the RD Session Host server. The RD Session Host server has permission to access the audio device on the RDP client.

Main Success Scenario

  1. Trigger: The remote application requests the remote desktop system to provide a connection to send audio content to the RDP client to play on the local audio device.

  2. The remote desktop system provides a remote application with the connection to the audio device on the RDP client.

  3. The remote application running on an RD Session Host will have the ability to stream audio content to an audio device connected to the RDP client.
