IWTSProtocolConnection interface (wtsprotocol.h)

[IWTSProtocolConnection is no longer available for use as of Windows Server 2012. Instead, use IWRdsProtocolConnection.]

Exposes methods called by the Remote Desktop Services service to configure a client connection. Your protocol must implement this interface to handle connection requests from clients. When the protocol listener receives a connection request from a client, it must create an IWTSProtocolConnection object and pass it to the Remote Desktop Services service by calling the OnConnected method. In response, the service adds a reference to the IWTSProtocolConnectionCallback object and returns a pointer to it. When the connection is no longer needed, the protocol must release the pointer.

During a connection sequence, the following methods are called by the Remote Desktop Services service in the order listed.

  1. GetLogonErrorRedirector
  2. SendPolicyData
  3. AcceptConnection
  4. GetClientData
  5. GetUserCredentials
  6. GetLicenseConnection
  7. AuthenticateClientToSession
  8. NotifySessionId
  9. GetProtocolHandles
  10. ConnectNotify
  11. IsUserAllowedToLogon
  12. SessionArbitrationEnumeration
  13. LogonNotify
  14. GetUserData
If the Remote Desktop Services service needs to reconnect after calling SessionArbitrationEnumeration, it reconnects by calling the following methods in the order listed:
  1. DisconnectNotify (Called on the new session that was created.)
  2. NotifySessionId (Called on the existing session.)
  3. GetProtocolHandles
  4. ConnectNotify
  5. LogonNotify
To disconnect, the Remote Desktop Services service calls the following methods in the order listed:
  1. DisconnectNotify
  2. Close
The Remote Desktop Services service can call the following methods at any time after a connection has been established:
