The Profile Editor is the tool to create, configure and edit Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server Access Profiles.
The first thing you have to consider is if you want to create an RDP Profile, a Web Link profile or an RD Web Access Profile.
These options are represented by the 'RDP Profile'/'Web Link'/'RD Web Access' radio button.
- An RDP Profile: is a Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server connection to a machine or an application.

website of your choice, which will be presented along with the profiles to the user. Read More.
