Customize webRDP Gateway Connection Screen UI

**Update 10/29/2016**
As of the webRDP HTML5 Gateway build, the desktop.jsp file is extracted into the /webRDP-Gateway/jetty/explodedWar folder.

If you are on an older build of the webRDP HTML5 Gateway, you will either need to upgrade to the latest release, or use the following steps.

This is not officially supported and remember that some parameters are required to make the connections.

  1. Install webRDP gateway.
  2. Start up gateway.
  3. Shut it down.
  4. Make a backup of C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\webapps\webRDP.war
  5. Open C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\webapps\webRDP.war with 7-zip or your favorite WAR editor.
  6. Edit the desktop.jsp file as desired and save it. Desktop.jsp can be obtained via request at support.stone-ware.com.
  7. Drag desktop.jsp into C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\webapps\webRDP.war at the top level.
  8. Edit C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\explodedWar\webapp\WEB-INF\web.xml, removing all references to desktop (see yellow highlights):

    After edits:

  9. Save C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\explodedWar\webapp\WEB-INF\web.xml.
  10. Drag C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\explodedWar\webapp\WEB-INF\web.xml into C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\webapps\webRDP.war\WEB-INF\ and replace the web.xml file already there.
  11. Remove C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\webapps\webRDP.war\WEB-INF\classes\org\apache\jsp\desktop_jsp.class from the WAR file.
  12. Close the C:\webRDP-Gateway\jetty\webapps\webRDP.war file.
  13. Restart the gateway.
  14. Clear browser cache.
  15. In your desired browser, go to http://<domain>/webRDP.  
  16. If on a desktop, this should redirect you to http://<domain>/webRDP/desktop.jsp and display the edits made to desktop.jsp in step 6.
