In View Administrator, you can configure the use of the Blast Secure Gateway to provide secure HTML access to remote desktops.
You can provide secure connections to external users who use HTML Access to connect to remote desktops. The Blast Secure Gateway, enabled by default on View Connection Server and security server hosts, ensures that only authenticated users can communicate with remote desktops. With HTML Access, the client software does not have to be installed on the users' endpoint devices.
When the Blast Secure Gateway is not enabled, client Web browsers use HTML Access to establish direct connections to remote desktop virtual machines, bypassing the Blast Secure Gateway.
- If users select remote desktops by using the Workspace Portal App Portal, verify that Workspace Portal is installed and configured for use with View Connection Server and that View Connection Server is paired with a SAML 2.0 Authentication server.
