In addition to RD Session Hosts, Virtual desktops, and Azure Virtual Desktop, resources can also be published from a standalone Remote PC running a supported version of Windows. A Remote PC can be a physical box or a virtual machine treated as a physical PC, but typically they are physical computers. If you have virtual machines on your network, it makes sense to use them as part of the VDI infrastructure as described in the VDI and Virtual Desktops chapter. However, if you don't need the guest VM cloning functionality or, for example, if your end users require full administrative permissions on a PC for customization, you can use a virtual machine as a Remote PC.

This chapter describes how to add a Remote PC to a Farm and how to publish remote applications and desktop from it.
