When you install the HTML Access component during a View Connection Server installation, the installer creates and enables a Windows Firewall rule to open the port that is used by HTML Access for client connections. However, on security servers, you must manually enable the rule in Windows Firewall to allow communication to the port.

About this task

By default, HTML Access uses TCP port 8443 for client connections to the Blast Secure Gateway.

Procedure

  • To open the port used by HTML Access on a View Connection Server computer, install HTML Access with View Connection Server on that computer.

    The installer enables the VMware View Connection Server (Blast-In) rule in Windows Firewall.

  • To open the port for HTML Access on a security server, manually enable the VMware View Connection Server (Blast-In) rule in Windows Firewall.
