Administrators use View Administrator to configure View Connection Server, deploy and manage remote desktops and applications, control user authentication, initiate and examine system events, and carry out analytical activities. Client systems that run View Administrator must meet certain requirements.

View Administrator is a Web-based application that is installed when you install View Connection Server. You can access and use View Administrator with the following Web browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 8

  • Internet Explorer 9

  • Internet Explorer 10 (from a Windows 8 system in Desktop mode)

  • Firefox 6 and later releases

To use View Administrator with your Web browser, you must install Adobe Flash Player 10.1 or later. Your client system must have access to the Internet to allow Adobe Flash Player to be installed.

The computer on which you launch View Administrator must trust the root and intermediate certificates of the server that hosts View Connection Server. The supported browsers already contain certificates for all of the well-known certificate authorities (CAs). If your certificates come from a CA that is not well known, you must follow the instructions in the View Installation document about importing root and intermediate certificates.

To display text properly, View Administrator requires Microsoft-specific fonts. If your Web browser runs on a non-Windows operating system such as Linux, UNIX, or Mac OS X, make sure that Microsoft-specific fonts are installed on your computer.

Currently, the Microsoft Web site does not distribute Microsoft fonts, but you can download them from independent Web sites.
