Note: I’m using an iPhone 3GS IOS4 with Wyse Pocket Cloud 1.3.81 Please download Wyse Pocket Cloud from the Apple App Store.You must have completed your Vmware View setup before continuing.
Wyse PocketCloud Setup
1. Once Wyse Pocket Cloud is installed, click on the icon to launch the application.
2. Click the + to create a new connection.3. VMware View must be turned on. Leaving it off purely forces the app to connect to a server using Remote Desktop (RDP). If you followed my guide on setting up Vmware View you will be using SSL. Ensure SSL Connection is on. Give the connection a nickname. Enter in either the server IP address or fully qualified domain name. Type in your username and password (this would be your active directory credentials).
4. Enter in your domain (this is your active directory domain). Select your VMware Desktop. Resolution 800 x 1148 is suggested for the iPhone. Port 443 is entered by default.

7. My Windows XP desktop is logging into the domain by passing through my previously entered credentials.
8. Vmware Virtual Desktop on your iPhone via Wyse Pocket Cloud is complete. With the Wyse Pocket Cloud app I can zoom in and out, move the screen around and I have a great virtual mouse that is extremly easy to use.
