Portal

The Turbo Server Portal is a web portal where users can log in to view and launch applications. Applications can be streamed from the Turbo Application Server using the Turbo Clients or HTML5 client, or ran locally using Turbo for Windows. Additionally, the portal provides API services allowing other client types to interact with the Turbo environment.

The Portal is assigned to port 80 by default.

Logging In

Portal user authentication is determined by the Authentication Type configured in the Turbo Server administration site.

If the server has an Authentication Type that requires users to log in with a username and password, users must provide valid credentials to access the Portal and launch applications. However, if the server has enabled anonymous access, users can access the Portal and launch applications without logging in.

If you are a user and need to log in but do not know your username and password, contact your Administrator to retrieve your credentials.

Signing In and Out via Turbo Launcher

Users can also log in or out via the Turbo Launcher after it is installed on their local machine. Users can bring up the Turbo Launcher by either going to the System Tray or hitting the keys "Alt + Windows." If the user is not logged in already, a login form will be available. If logged in, the user can click on the arrow in the lower-left corner of the Console and select "Sign Out" or "Exit."

When specifying the server URL in the login form, use one of the conventions, below, as appropriate:

  • Using http on the default port (80): http://<server>
  • Using http on any other port: http://<server>:<port>
  • Using https (SSL) on the default port (443): https://<server>
  • Using https (SSL) on any other port: https://<server>:<port>

Installing the Turbo Client

For the best experience, it is recommended to install and use one of the native Turbo.net clients on your device. Turbo.net provides clients for all major desktop and mobile platforms.

If you do not use one of Turbo.net client applications, you can still use Turbo via the HTML5 interface in any major web browser.

If you are on a device issued by your organization, your system administrator may already have installed the necessary Turbo Client on your device.

The Turbo Client interacts with the Turbo VM kernel to allow container execution. If you want your Turbo Client to automatically be updated for compatibility and feature fixes, download the Windows client installer from http://turbo.net/downloads. If you want to manage updates manually, download the Windows client installer from the hub at http://[hubserver]/Plugin/Install/ (note that the path is case sensitive and requires the trailing slash).
