How to configure a multi-hop connection

To reach a destination remote computer via multiple connections, you must install Remote Runtime on each intermediary remote computer, not only on the final target computer.

Scenario: RDP connections

Consider the following scenario:
  • Machine A (with Studio and/or Robot) connects via RDP (Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol) to Machine B, and
  • Machine B connects via RDP to Machine C, where the target application is running, and the automation must be performed.
In this example, the following configuration is required:
  1. Machine A – install Studio/Robot and the Extension for Microsoft Remote Desktop and Apps (UiPath® RDP extension).
  2. Machine B – install the Extension for Microsoft Remote Desktop and Apps and UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi.
  3. Machine C – install UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi.


If other types of connections are used between two machines, you must configure a connection at each hop, with the appropriate extension:
  • Extension for Citrix for the case of Citrix connection
  • Extension for Microsoft Remote Desktop and Apps (UiPath RDP extension) for the case of RDP connection
  • Extension for VMWare Horizon for the case of VMWare connection

Scenario: RDP connection and Citrix connection

Let's consider another scenario in which:
  • Machine A (with Studio and/or Robot) connects via RDP to Machine B, and
  • Machine B connects via Citrix to Machine C, where the target application is running, and the automation must be performed.


On Machine B (or other intermediary machines), you can install the extension with one of these methods:

Automating Java or web applications

Regardless of your multi-hop connection scenario, if you are automating a Java application or a web application, you must also install the corresponding extension (the extension for Java, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox) on the remote machine. This can be done by running:
