About OVD Enterprise 3.1.1

Inuvika OVD Enterprise 3.1.1 is a maintenance release that includes a number of fixes for OVD 3.1.  It includes maintenance fixes and multiple backend improvements that increase performance and improve stability.

What's New in OVD 3.1

Inuvika OVD Enterprise 3.1 adds enhanced support for connecting and redirecting USB devices, new options for passcode authentication when using Two-Factor Authentication, and various maintenance fixes.

For more details, please refer to the changelog at the bottom of the page.

Extended Two-Factor Authentication: Secure Keys and Email OTP

Administrators may now allow users to authenticate using One Time Passwords delivered to their email accounts or by using secure keys. The new options allow users to authenticate with 2FA even if they are unable to access the Inuvika Authenticator App on their smartphones.

Web Access Seamless Clipboard

Copy and paste from the Clipboard has been simplified when accessing OVD via a web browser.  The text transition area has been removed and users may now use the conventional keyboard shortcut combinations CTLR / CMD-C and CTRL / CMD-V when transferring clipboard information to and from the client and application server.  This feature requires that HTTPS be enabled and is currently limited to Chrome-based browsers.

Premium Device Redirection

OVD now supports a wide variety of USB devices by integrating with Fabulatech's USB for Remote Desktop.  Users can redirect any USB device when accessing remote Windows desktops and applications using Inuvika's Enterprise Desktop Client.

Additional Features:

  • Redirection does not require the installation of device drivers on the user's local machine
  • Auto-redirection of hot-plugged USB devices without the need for user interaction
  • Ability to dedicate specific USB ports for redirection, leaving the remaining ports for local use
  • Highly-secure redirection between the user's local device and the OVD Windows Application Server
  • Works with any USB device that is supported by remote Windows server/desktop environments

Support for Microsoft Windows Server 2022

OVD 3.1.1 introduces support for Windows Server 2022 as well as supporting all Windows Server versions since, and including, 2012 R2.

End of support scheduled for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

OVD 3.1.x is the last version to support Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

End of support scheduled for CentOS

In the February 15, release notes for OVD Enterprise 3.1.0, Inuvika indicated that the 3.1.x releases would be the last to support CentOS Linux.

Inuvika has reversed this decision and has extended support for CentOS Linux to OVD Enterprise version 3.2.x. Support will now end after version 3.2.x.
