Customize your RDP login page using web aliases

This article will offer you some tips & tricks to customize the logo and web-styling characteristics of your RDP login page.
There are several methods you could follow to change the Logo, on the Thinfinity Remote Desktop’s landing page.

You can accomplish this by replacing the image files in the directory “C:\Program Files\Thinfinity\Remote Desktop Server\webrdp\images” or just editing the source file in the ‘index.html’. But the best way is to use web aliases.

Web Aliases allow you to leave the original files unaltered. This is very useful when updating the Thinfinity Remote Desktop version. Otherwise, when you make an update, the modified files will be replaced by the default ones losing all your customizations.

Customize company logo

To get started you just need to create a file called “WebAliases.ini” in “C:\Program Files\Thinfinity\Remote Desktop Server\bin64”.
In this file you will map the original file to a new one, like this:

[Alias]
/originalLogo.png=newLogo.png

The paths in the “WebAliases.ini” file are relative to the webroot (“C:\Program Files\Thinfinity\Remote Desktop Server\web”). If you want to change the logo, for instance, it should look like this:

[Alias]
/images/idx/productlogo.png.png=C:\myFolder\NewLogo.png

And this is the result when you reload the page:

Customize the Favicon

To change the favicon you should simply update the file “web/icon.png” with your icon file. This will update the icon you see in the browser tab:

Customize the Styles

Updating the styles will require some CSS knowledge. Make a copy of the files before trying any new settings.
You will find all the CSS files in: “C:\Program Files\Thinfinity\Remote Desktop Server\webrdp\css”

Once you reach the file you would like to work with, you just need to make the changes and save the file.

If you don’t have any CSS knowledge we recommend asking your Web designer for some assistance.

After applying the changes, you should refresh your browser cache for the updates to take effect.
