APM does not support Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport (BEAT) protocol which is required for Blast UDP


Since APM does not support Blast UDP, Vmware Horizon Client always uses TCP transport even when the network conditions dictate that UDP transport would be more efficient


1. Vmware View Connection Server is configured for Blast UDP 2. Client attempts Blast UDP



Fix Information

APM now adds support for Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport protocol, which in turn enables Blast UDP.
