The HP Anyware PCoIP Software Client is installed on a Windows OS client and is connecting to a CentOS 5.3 host.

The screen on the software client shows the login screen for the host OS in windowed mode (not full screen).

When the local cursor moves in and out of the PCoIP Software Client window, the cursor position on the PCoIP Software Client window doesn't match the position of the cursor on the Windows OS (see the picture below).





The PCoIP Host Software driver daemon running on the login screen only accepts relative mouse events.


  • This only affects hosts with the Linux operating system



Connect in full screen mode before changing to Windowed mode after login.
