This article describes how to install and configure an Impero Host on a terminal server (TS) machine, so that an Impero Guest running outside the terminal server can connect to any individual session running on that server.

Since Impero Connect modules running on the terminal server (in this case, the Hosts) are required to communicate with Impero Connect modules running outside the terminal server (that is, on networked PCs or “fat clients”, in this case, the Guests), the Impero Gateway should be installed and running on the terminal server console.

Impero Gateway can receive Impero communication that uses one communication device and send it using another communication device. This feature enables Impero Gateway to provide communication between Impero modules that use mutually incompatible communication devices, typically to connect Impero modules inside a network or terminal server environment with Impero modules outside a network or terminal server environment.
