Gateway RVEC Management - Accelerated Remote Visualisation

Fujitsu’s Gateway RVEC Management tool provides accelerated remote visualisation for graphical applications across any network connection. It employs Fujitsu’s own Remote Virtual Environment Computing (RVEC) technology for lossless data compression and intelligent image transfer from the server to client device. Additionally RVEC enables direct collaboration between users by sending the same remote desktop to multiple distinct client connections.
RVEC is particularly adapted for applications that demand the most precise replication such as CAD and CAE pre/post-processing tools.

You can see some examples in Fujitsu's Accelerated Visualisation.

RVEC is a software-only solution to deliver remote access to graphical applications. It employs a differential data compression process that enables users to interact dynamically with even the most graphically-intensive tools, delivering precise image reproduction and fluid movement on the client screen.

Three elements are involved in the overall architecture:

  1. RVEC Server running on the remote system.
  2. RVEC Client installed on the end-user device.
  3. HPC Gateway which acts as a connection broker.

The RVEC Client and Server communicate on specific ports. Traffic must be allowed through any corporate or other firewall on these ports in order for RVEC to be used.

The standard RVEC communication port is 21752

To use remote visualisation system you will first need to install the RVEC Client on your local device. Only Windows OS is currently supported on the client machine.
Download the RVEC Client installer, execute this file and follow the instructions to complete the installation. This will create two entries in the Windows Start menu within a folder named Fujitsu.

Tip to switch from Japanese default setting to English:

When you launch the RvecClientInstaller010X.exe and you have a local language which is not Japanese or English, the default installation language will be Japanese as following:

This panel is asking in Japanese you to “Select the language for the installation from the choices below.”

The list presents “Japanese” selected by default.

You should select the second item of the list which corresponds to “English (united States)” as following, then click on OK:

The installation dialogue will then continue in English.

(The default language will very soon be set to English united states in a coming version of RVEC client)

IMPORTANT : DON'T select 3D mouse option unless you have real a 3D mouse device.

  • Client is used for the initial connection to a RVEC Server.
  • Collaboration is used to join an active remote desktop session created by another user.

The following steps will establish your RVEC session on the remote system.

  • First open RVEC Management tool in HPC Gateway. This can be found in the Start menu under Addons. Only servers authorised for the connected identity will be shown.

  • Choose the RVEC Server host machine. Double-click the icon, or right-click and choose Connect.

  • Run the connection bootstrap file that is downloaded by the browser. This file launches the RVEC Client located in your client device. Depending on your browser this may be executed automatically.

  • Login to the remote desktop.

NOTE: It is not possible to respond to this instruction with the keyboard directly.

To issue this combination of commands through the RVEC client a button is available under the Action menu, labelled Send Ctrl+Alt+Del.

This procedure is similar to establishing the initial connection, except that the this time the RVEC Client will be started in Collaboration mode.

  • Open RVEC Management tool in HPC Gateway. This can be found in the Start menu under Addons. Only servers authorised for the connected identity will be shown.

The login to a Windows remote desktop can be automated with the UserInfoSetting tool provided with the RVEC Client installation. A link can be found under Start > Fujitsu > FTCP Remote Desktop.

This tool allows you to register credentials for individuals IP addresses of target servers.

CAUTION : Usernames and Passwords are stored with encryption in the client.

For a registered machine once the connection is established the remote desktop will open immediately, without prompting the user to login explicitly.
