If your vCloud Director installation includes multiple cloud cells running behind a load balancer or NAT, or if the cloud cells do not have publicly-routable IP addresses, you can set a public console proxy address.

During the initial configuration of each cloud cell, you specified a remote console proxy IP address. By default, vCloud Director uses that address when a user attempts to view a virtual machine console. To use a different address, specify a public console proxy address.


  1. Click the Administration tab and click Public Addresses in the left pane.
  2. Type the hostname or IP address for the public console proxy address.
    This can be the address of the load balancer or some other machine that can route traffic to the remote console proxy IP.
  3. Click Apply.


Remote console session tickets sent to the HTTP service IP address return the public console proxy address.
