Starting from Parallels RAS version 18.1 we add support for Azure Virtual Desktop RDP Shortpath.

RDP Shortpath is a feature of Azure Virtual Desktop(Windows Virtual Desktop) that establishes a direct UDP-based transport between Remote Desktop Client and Session host.

In order to enable this feature it should be configured in Parallels RAS and as well as on Microsoft Azure side.
