webRDP expireDateLink parameter changed in release 1.3

webRDP expireDateLink parameter changed in release 1.3

Issue

The expireDateLink parameter used in 1.2, when generating encrypted URL's that expire on specific day is no longer valid.
The old parameter looked like:
expireDateLink=<mm/dd/yy>.


Solution

With the release of 1.3 the encrypted URL expiration time range was expanded to include a specific time of day for the URL to expire.
Because of this, there is a new parameter that uses a different format:
linkExpirationTimestamp=<timestamp>

The timestamp is a value in seconds since midnight Jan 1, 1970 UTC.  Essentially we are now using the Unix Epoch.  For this reason, you can use any Unix time stamp converting utility to generate the proper value.

The following is good example of a Unix time stamp converting utility:
