Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) gives you the option to open web links (URLs) within the published applications in your local internet browser for Terminal Servers (RDSH). This comes in handy as it will reduce the load on the server side and run the web page on the local browser.
This option must be set on both the RAS console and on the client being used.
