Applications available in Identity Router? RDP and SMB needed

I'm working on deploying RSA Cloud Authentication to augment my existing Authentication Manager, and I've got a couple of questions regarding the User Application Portal I haven't been able to find documentation for. I haven't started deploying it yet, because I want to make sure I understand the feature and configuration before deploying it. We currently have another product which provides a similar service (If I understand the purpose of the IDR portal correctly), but we'd consider moving that functionality to the IDR since all remote access requires MFA. First, does the portal support only HTTP/S, or are other protocols supported? 


In particular, we allow users to connect to their desktop computers via our Web VPN using Remote Desktop. A search of the community didn't show any results for "portal RDP". Is RDP supported? Can a link be (fairly) easily be configured for a single user? Can this be done by the end-user, or does an admin have to do it? An admin already needs to be involved to confirm the computer has a DHCP reservation or static address.


Our current product also allows access to the file shares on Window servers. Does the IDR portal support SMB file shares?


At this point we're inclined to keep our current product, but I don't want to burn any bridges when I'm setting this up.

Hi Paul Gibson‌ - the SSO application portal hosted by the Identity Router supports https only. 

It can also support various MFA methods via RADIUS. 


You could check our RSA Ready page to see if your VPN is a supported integration.  Or see if your "other product" can be integrated with the RSA SecurID Access Cloud Authentication Service.


I don't totally understand your use case but you might also check out RSA MFA Agent for Microsoft Windows for your user desktop machines.


Hope that helps,
